UC Santa Barbara, Oklahoma State, Miami and Arizona got the College World Series championship bracket underway from Omaha, Nebraska, on Saturday. On Sunday, the other half of the field will try to take the next steps toward a national championship. 

Of the eight teams remaining, only two under the double-elimination format will move on to the national championship series. 

Here is a look at Sunday's schedule and how you can watch:

Players to Watch

Peter Alonso, 1B, Florida

The Gators' success will depend on their pitchers. A.J. Puk and Logan Shore are two of the best arms college baseball has to offer, but Florida will need to score some runs to make sure its pitchers have enough support. 

That's where Peter Alonso, the biggest threat in Florida's lineup, comes in. 

Alonso batted .373 this season with 13 home runs and 58 RBI, which was interrupted by a broken hand in May that only sidelined him for three weeks. In his first at-bat during his first game back, he launched a home run which helped set the tone for his monstrous College World Series. 

In six games at the NCAA tournament, Alonso is hitting .520 with three home runs and 11 RBI, per Ethan Bauer of the Tampa Bay Times

Davis Martin, P, Texas Tech

Texas Tech has three solid pitchers they can roll out if needed in this championship bracket, but Davis Martin has to be the arm to set the tone. 

Of the Red Raiders' big arms, he's been the most worked and has the best numbers:

Davis Martin1382.19-12.7358
Hayden Howard179.19-32.9552
Robert Dugger057.26-02.3448

Martin could set the tone in this bracket early if he pitches Sunday against TCU. The Horned Frogs are averaging a little over 7.1 runs per game, and a gem from Texas Tech's most reliable pitcher could start them off on the right foot. 

Luken Baker, 1B, TCU

Not only can Luken Baker pitch, he can also knock the cover off the ball as one of TCU's many offensive weapons. 

He's batting .379 with nine home runs this season for a TCU team that saw its 2015 season end in the championship bracket at the hands of Vanderbilt. 

The thing is, Baker is a freshman whose naivety could be a plus for the Horned Frogs as they look to take the next step in the quest for their first-ever national championship. 

Zach Remillard, 3B, Coastal Carolina

This is the first time that Coastal Carolina will play in the College World Series championship bracket in Omaha, and a lot of that has to do with the team's power. 

It has four players who have launched 15 or more home runs this season with the largest presence proving to be Zach Remillard. 

Remillard has a team-leading 19 home runs, which is also tied for eighth in the nation. On top of that, he's hitting .347 while driving in 69 runs. With numbers like that, Remillard is the kind of player who creates instant offense. That's a huge asset for the Chanticleers on such a big stage.
