The Arkansas Razorbacks’ quest for the program’s first College World Series title survived another day, thanks to their 11-1 rout of Auburn on Tuesday night.
Now, Dave Van Horn’s squad must find a way to knock off SEC rival Ole Miss twice over the next two days to advance to the program’s first CWS championship series since 2018.
The Razorbacks got to Wednesday’s elimination game after knocking off No. 2 seeded Stanford in their CWS opener on Saturday, 17-2, before falling to the Rebels 13-5 on Monday.
Now, Arkansas finds itself in a win-or-go-home situation at 6 p.m. Central time Wednesday on ESPN.
Arkansas, which entered the CWS among the top four teams in betting odds, has never won a national title in baseball, losing in the championship round in 1979 and 2018.
Here’s what you need to know ahead of Wednesday’s game when it comes to Arkansas sports betting.
