The NCAA College World Series has officially gotten underway. Viewers have already seen the chaos ensure in Ohmaha as a Cinderella Story is 2-0, a Goliath rallied for 4 runs in the ninth to avoid an 0-1 start and an SEC favorite has already been eliminated. Below will be a quick recap of all the action so far as well as where to watch the remainder of the CWS.

Michigan Stays Red Hot
Michigan was never expected to get past the Regional Round of the NCAA Tournament. Fast Forward to now and they have already upset No. 23 Creighton in Regionals, No. 1 UCLA in Supers, and now Texas Tech and Florida State in the CWS.
Michigan has benefited off of outstanding pitching over this run, led by Ace Tommy Henry. The 74th pick in last months MLB Draft, Henry hurled 7 innings of two-run ball against UCLA to get Michigan to Omaha, then followed it up with a complete game shutout against Texas Tech to get Michigan within a game of the Finals.
Auburn Fluffs a chance at a First Round Upset
Auburn is not a stranger to heartbreaking moments in College Sports. Between Jamies Winston finding Kelvin Benjamin in the back of the end zone with 17 seconds left in the 2013 National Championship, Samir Doughty Fouling Ty Jerome to set up a loss in last years final four, and continously finding ways to lose to big brother Alabama in the Iron Bowl. Auburn fans have had it tough.
Up 4-1 entering the 9th inning in the Opening Round, they found a way to self destruct once again.
Auburn will play Louisville in an elimination game June 18.
Kings Stay Kings (Kinda)
Favourites Vanderbilt and Mississipi State both picked up wins to start their campaigns. They will play each other in the second round for a chance to join Michigan as the only undefeated teams left in the Tournament. Vanderbilt will start Ace Kumar Rocker, whom we last saw strike out 19 Duke players in a no-hitter. The number one seed of the tournament is in great shape.
Possibly the third best team entering Ohmaha is already on their way home, however. SEC powerhouse Arkansas lost their first two games and is officially the first team eliminated. They will be joined by the loser of Auburn and Louisville on June 18.
