College World Series
<< 2006 2007 2008 >>

The 2007 College World Series was played at Johnny Rosenblatt Stadium in Omaha, NE. The participating schools qualified by winning their Regional and Super-Regional tournaments. Oregon State University repeated as national champions, the first team to do since Louisiana State University in 1996-1997. OSU only trailed for one of 45 innings they played in the Series. They became the first CWS champ to have had a losing record in Conference play, going 10-14 in the Pacific-10 Conference to tie for sixth and almost being left out of the field of 64 to qualify for the Series. Jorge Reyes of Oregon State University was named Most Outstanding Player.

Game 4 Oregon State 3-2 Fullerton State Wes Roemer becomes the all-time Cal State Fullerton leader in strikeouts.
