Wednesday's storms in Omaha kept the 2012 College World Series bracket from eliminating another contender, but it also created the promise of a truly wild Thursday at TD Ameritrade Park. Thursday's action now begins at 11 AM CDT, when South Carolina vs. Kent State will be made up, before moving on to a 4 PM CDT rematch of Arizona vs. Florida State (in which all the St. Louis Cardinals' outstanding draft picks will be playing) and ending with an 8 PM CDT matchup between 2-0 Arkansas and the winner of the morning contest. It's going to be a wild day, and the results of a day in which three teams could be eliminated (Arizona and Arkansas are both undefeated) could shape the entire remainder of the College World Series.
Florida State and South Carolina, both among the tournaments' favorites going in, each lost tough games to put themselves into single-elimination position; FSU fell to Arizona in extra innings in their opening game of the tournament, while South Carolina fell to Arkansas by a final score of 2-1, ending a 22-game postseason winning streak.
It'll be a big day of games, and for central-timers it all starts before noon. Good luck fitting it all in; here's an updated bracket for more information.
