Update June 19th 5:00 p.m. ET: With a 10-2 win over Texas, the Aggies will now face the loser of the Oklahoma-Notre Dame game on Tuesday. If they win, they’ll face the winner of Oklahoma-Notre Dame, and will need to defeat that team twice to advance to the CWS Finals.
The Texas A&M Aggies fell 13-8 to the Oklahoma Sooners in Game 1 of the 2022 College World Series on Friday afternoon.
But while the Aggies are down, they are not out of a path to the NCAA Division I Championship this season. But their path is now perfection only, as they’ll need to win four straight games to reach the College World Series Finals.
First Texas A&M will need to beat Texas on June 19th in the losers bracket game. Afterwards they’ll need to win three additional games, first over the loser of the Notre Dame vs. Oklahoma game on June 19th, and then twice in a row over the winner.
If they can win their next four in a row, the Aggies will reach the College World Series Finals. They would face the winner of the other bracket which features Arkansas vs. Stanford and Ole Miss vs. Auburn, and that series will be best two-out-of-three starting next Saturday, June 25th.
