Best bet on the Tube

 

UCLA has won a record 108 national championships in team sports. Baseball, however, is not among those. That will change this week if the Bruins beat Mississippi State in the best-of-three College World Series finals that start today ( 5 p.m, ESPN). The Bruins are in the CWS for the fifth time and are 7-9 in Omaha. The closest they have come to a national title was in 2010, when they were swept by South Carolina in the finals. Mississippi State is looking for its first title in any team sport. They last played in the College World Series in 1985 with Will Clark, Rafael Palmeiro, Jeff Brantley and Bobby Thigpen, but they went 2-2. – Associated Press
