Beavers will face Cal State Fullerton in College World Series
The College World Series field is complete and the top-ranked Oregon State Beavers will face Cal State Fullerton in Omaha, Nebraska Saturday at noon PST.
The Beavers will take off for Omaha later this week riding the nation's longest winning streak at 21 straight games and a 54-4 overall record on the season.
"I feel blessed to be able to coach them and the effort they've given us, and we're looking forward to the next challenge," said Beavers coach Pat Casey of his team after a 9-2 win over Vanderbilt to close out the Corvallis Super Regional in two games.
Cal State Fullerton is 39-22 on the season after winning the Long Beach State NCAA Super Regional.
This game will feature the only two west coast teams in the College World Series field which also includes No. 3 Florida, No. 4 LSU, No. 6 TCU, No. 7 Louisville, Florida State and Texas A&M.
It remains to be seen if Beavers Jr. pitcher Luke Heimlich will play in Omaha. Heimlich asked to be excused from playing in the midst of a sex crime scandal. He watched Saturday's game from the dugout and Casey wouldn't provide an update on Heimlich's status after Oregon State's win over Vanderbilt.
"I haven't read anything and have no comment on that," Casey said.
