The last two spots in the College World Series were up for grabs Monday with all four teams ready to do whatever necessary to keep their seasons alive. 

Six teams advanced beyond the super regionals over the weekend but Ole Miss, Arkansas, North Carolina and Auburn all needed one more win to get to Omaha. Of course, one more loss would also be enough to end any chance at a national championship.

The pressure was on in the final day of competition from the team sites this season.

Here is everything you need to know about Monday's action.


Monday Results

No. 2 Auburn def. No. 1 North Carolina, 14-7

No. 1 Arkansas def. No. 1 Ole Miss, 14-1

Monday Recap

Auburn 14, North Carolina 7

Auburn is headed to the College World Series for the first time since 1997 after a blowout win over North Carolina.

Seven of the Tigers' nine starters had multi-hit games in the offensive explosion, with Judd Ward, Rankin Woley and Edouard Julien each finishing with three hits.

Although the game lasted nine innings, it was effectively over in the top of the first.

It was a nightmare start for North Carolina as starting pitcher Joey Lancellotti walked four straight batters before getting pulled. It only got worse from there as some big hits brought home a lot of runs:


Edouard Julien's bat is still hot! @AuburnBaseball brings home two! #RoadToOmaha https://t.co/cVJJD24b8q


His first hit of a Super Regional... A HOME RUN! Judd Ward keeps it rollin' for @AuburnBaseball #RoadToOmaha https://t.co/qFHFfZL9rj

Aaron Fitt @aaronfitt

Judd Ward just greeted Hansen Butler with a three-run homer to right field. It is 8-0 Auburn. UNC is completely shellshocked here in the first inning. Phew.

Auburn ended up scoring 13 runs in the first half-inning, which was an ugly one for the Tar Heels:

Final line on Auburn's top of the first inning at the plate: 4 North Carolina pitchers 5 walks 9 hits 13 runs 50 minutes elapsed

The Tigers only added one more run all game but the insurance wasn't really needed.

North Carolina did keep hope alive as the game progressed with some big home runs to cut the deficit:


Ashton McGee says meeeeeee!! @DiamondHeels with a 3 run blast to get the action started for the Tar Heels. #RoadToOmaha https://t.co/qUyxGcy4fR


Aaron Sabato knocks it out of the park for a 2 run homer! #RoadToOmaha | @DiamondHeels https://t.co/ZJYPHRngwr

They added a few more runs in the eighth and ninth, but there was just too much ground to cover after the miserable start.

Getting to the super regionals was enough of a surprise for Auburn, which needed to win twice over No. 3 overall seed Georgia Tech on the road. The squad then kept it up on the road in Chapel Hill with two victories in three games against the No. 14 national seed.


Arkansas 14, Ole Miss 1

Auburn wasn’t the only SEC team to advance to the College World Series in blowout fashion on Monday.

Arkansas gave up the first run to Ole Miss but quickly took the lead and never looked back, steamrolling the Rebels with an offensive outburst and timely pitching to clinch a trip to Omaha. Starting pitcher Patrick Wicklander allowed a run in the top of the first and worked just 1.2 innings, but Cody Scroggins led a stellar bullpen effort and cleared the way for the offense’s quick comeback.

Scroggins allowed just two hits with eight strikeouts in 4.1 innings, while Jacob Kostyshock and Matt Cronin finished the final three innings in scoreless fashion.

The combined pitching effort is a welcome sign in front of the challenge ahead, but it didn’t have to be quite so precise given the Razorbacks’ offensive production.

Arkansas put four runs on the board in the second inning, three runs in the third inning and five runs in the sixth inning, leaving little doubt who would advance past the decisive contest. Heston Kjerstad’s two-RBI double in the third broke the game open, and he blasted a solo homer in the fifth just for good measure.


@RazorbackBSB Update: We just received confirmation that this ball was just seen flying over Texas.

The explosion in the sixth included a two-RBI double from Dominic Fletcher and a two-run homer from Casey Opitz.


WOO PIG SOOIE Casey Opitz gets in on the dinger action and the Hogs have a 14-1 lead! #RoadToOmaha | @RazorbackBSB https://t.co/9MFzyXmBOX

Opitz, Kjerstad and Trevor Ezell were the offensive stars, combining for nine hits, 10 RBI and six runs.

If they continue to hit like that behind a bullpen that proved it can deliver in pressure-packed situations, the Razorbacks will be a dangerous threat to any team in Omaha.
