Though the University of Florida is in search of its first national title in baseball, the Gators are playing in the best-of-three title series at the College World Series for their third time. Southeastern Conference foe LSU is no stranger to baseball championships as the NCAA’s team of the 90s. The Tigers, however, are playing in their first title series since 2009.
All in all, these two teams wear familiar colors at the College World Series while the teams located closer to Omaha struggle to get that far. Iowa and Nebraska made the 64-team bracket, but each failed to get past the first weekend. The most notable natives of either Iowa or Nebraska are linked to other programs in the College World Series.
