After eliminating the Texas Longhorns on Saturday, the Mississippi State Bulldogs are set to face off against the Vanderbilt Commodores.

Unfortunately for Mississippi State, the Bulldogs weren’t able to get much rest between beating Texas and having to face Vanderbilt. Meanwhile, the Commodores got an extra day off despite coming out of the elimination bracket because NC State had to go home early due to COVID-19 protocols.

It was controversial, it was messy, and it made the road to a championship even tougher for Mississippi State. Despite that, one journalist who extensively and thoroughly covers college baseball still believes in the Bulldogs’ ability to win against Vandy.

D1Baseball’s Kendall Rogers was asked by a fan as to who he thought would win it all in the College World Series. While many are likely to pick the Commodores, Rogers chose the Bulldogs to come out on top of the College World Series finals.

With the College World Series set to start, NCAA baseball fans from all over the country will be headed to Omaha, Nebraska, to watch the country’s eight best teams play each other with the goal of winning a championship. While it’s often overlooked, Omaha is a city that deserves more credit for everything it has to offer.

I actually had the pleasure of living in Omaha for a couple of years and, despite the bitter winters, I thoroughly enjoyed my time living in the Midwest.

Omaha is a wonderful city with a great food scene, plenty of bars (especially sports bars), and a solid amount of nightlife.

There’s always something happening somewhere in town and, thanks to the size and layout of the city, it’s pretty easy to get just about anywhere you need within 20 to 30 minutes.
