Wake Forest Demon Deacons

The Wake Forest Demon Deacons have arguably had the most impressive campaign at this year's College World Series. They are 2-0 in Omaha, with those wins coming against top-10 teams in Stanford and LSU. Their win over LSU was especially impressive, as the Demon Deacons had to show some serious resilience to bounce back from a 2-0 deficit to win that game.

Here, Wake Forest will look for more heroics from Brock Wilken to take LSU down once and for all. Wilken has four home runs during tournament play, and is hitting .368 in the tournament as well. He will be essential to the success of Wake Forest, as they look to avoid an elimination game against LSU by taking care of business on Wednesday.

LSU Tigers

LSU faced elimination on Tuesday against the Tennessee Volunteers, and they passed that test with flying colors. They beat their SEC rivals 5-0 on Tuesday to keep their season alive and set up a rematch with Wake Forest. The question now is whether LSU can win in their third straight day playing in Omaha.

The offense of the Tigers struggled against Wake Forest on Monday, putting up just two runs in that contest. But the real question going into this game is what the pitching staff will look like for LSU, given how much baseball they have had to play over the last two days relative to their opponents.
