College World Series 2013 Schedule: Channel, Time, Preview for Remaining Games

Tim Keeney@@t_keenContributor IJune 20, 2013

The 2013 College World Series is quickly heating up, and Wednesday night's elimination game between Oregon State and Indiana proved just that. 

In the first 1-0 game since 1985, Oregon State's Matt Boyd out-dueled fellow starter Aaron Slegers to help legend Pat Casey move closer to earning his third national championship.

And although Indiana was eliminated after the thrilling contest, the Hoosiers have no reason to hang their heads following the most successful season in school history. 

As if there weren't enough intriguing storylines and tantalizing angles jam-packed into that one matchup, heated intrastate rivals North Carolina and North Carolina State will now step to the plate for a chance at Tobacco Road bragging rights and the last spot in the CWS final four.

If you aren't enthralled at this point,  we can't be friends.

Preview

In the fifth installment of the I-40 battle on Thursday night, UNC will send out junior Hobbs Johnson, while NC State will counter with sophomore Carlos Rodon.

The Wolfpack were initially going to send freshman Brad Stone to the mound, but no long before the start of Thursday's game, they elected to go with Rodon, who has had the Tar Heels' number throughout his career.

In the opening round of the CWS, Rodon twirled a complete-game gem to help the Wolfpack win 8-1 and tie the season series at two games apiece. 

The winner of "Game 5" will meet UCLA in the next round, needing to beat the Bruins twice in order to advance to the championship series. 

On the other side of the bracket, Mississippi State, thanks to two narrow wins over Oregon State and Indiana, holds the advantage over the Beavers. 

The Bulldogs, who haven't played since Monday, will have a rested pitching staff and, more importantly, will only need to win one out of the next two against OSU to advance to the championship.
