2012 NCAA Baseball Tournament: Florida Can Wrap Up Spot In College World Series With Victory Over N.C. State

The Florida Gators can return to the College World Series on Sunday should they take Game 2 of this best-of-three 2012 NCAA Baseball Tournament Super Regional matchup. After taking Saturday's game, 7-1, the Gators are looking to make another trip to Omaha and do what they failed to accomplish against South Carolina last year: win the College World Series.

Florida will start Jonathon Crawford on the mound for what could be the deciding game of this series. Crawford is 6-2 with a 2.92 ERA this season and threw a no-hitter against Bethune-Cookman to open the NCAA Baseball Tournament.

The Wolfpack will counter with freshman phenom Carlos Rodon, who has gone 9-0 with a 1.61 ERA in 16 games. He has struck out 132 in 111.2 innings pitched so far. The Wolfpack certainly have the pitcher they want on the mound to help keep their postseason dreams alive.

Game time/date: 11:00 a.m. MT, Sunday, June 10, 2012

Location: McKethan Stadium, Gainesville, Fla.

TV: ESPNU
