In the other half of the bracket, TCU and Florida are still fighting for a spot in the finals. If TCU defeats Florida on Friday, LSU and Oregon State will play at 2 p.m.; if Florida wins and eliminates TCU, the Tigers and Beavers will play at 7 p.m. The Tigers will be the home team on Saturday.

LSU jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the 2nd inning against Beavers started Jake Thompson (14-1). Big props to Zach Watson, who's 8 for his last 12 in Omaha, led the Tigers at the plate with a perfect 3-for-3 afternoon that included a walk and run scored.
