Arizona avoided elimination earlier today with a 9-3 win over Oklahoma State, and Coastal Carolina will attempt to do the same on the other side of the bracket tonight against TCU. The Frogs have had a couple of days off and will enter tonight's game well rested, and with a legitimate ace on the mound in Mitchell Traver. His injury two weeks before the start of the season has kept him from having the dominant season that we, and much of the national media expected, but he has steadily improved week-to-week since he first came back into the rotation in early May.

Coastal Carolina will throw Andrew Beckwith, who is 13-1 on the season with a 2.02 ERA. Beckwith will be pitching on four days rest after throwing a complete game against Florida in their CWS opener on Sunday. For more info on the matchup, check out our Frogs O' War game preview from earlier today. If the Frogs can manage a win tonight, they will have earned a spot in the College World Series Championship Series against either Arizona or Oklahoma State. Follow along with us in the comments below as we cover the action.

Go Frogs.
