June 20 Game 5 North Carolina 3-0 Texas Texas gets swept out of a College World Series for only the fourth time in 34 appearances.

Game 7 California 7-3 Texas A&M The California program that was cut due to state budget issues only to be saved by alumni and other donors remained alive in the Series. Closer Matt Flemer tosses three shutout innings in relief, while Kyle Porter improves to 6-0. #9 hitter Derek Campbell drives in two runs as the #9 hitter. Texas A&M eliminated.
