While Oregon State was able to snag the victory late after late game heroics, it was was the Arkansas Razorback fans that filled TD Ameritrade Park Wednesday. 

"It's big to our state because we don't have a pro team so everything from the football team, the basketball team, and especially now the baseball team have a big following, you'll see that tonight, you saw that last night."

Arkansas fans came to Nebraska in droves today, with TAC Air saying that 80-100 private jets flew into Omaha for the chance to see the Hogs win their first ever CWS. 

"I mean it's not like we have been there to watch all the times that they haven't won it. And this is one time they do get to go and win it and do it would just be really cool if they did," Wit Griffin, Arkansas fan.

The Razorbacks have been in Omaha plenty of times before, but this is their first championship appearance under former Husker skipper Dave Van Horn and Hogs fans believe 2018 is the year they finally break through.

"It would mean everything, it would mean our three big sports would have one. Because our football has one, our basketball team has one and now our baseball will have one," Ann Brown, Arkansas fan.

Hog fans were not alone, as it wasn't difficult to spot Oregon State fans either.They hope to take the trophy back home for some bragging rights over their cross-state rival. 

"Everybody knows about the Oregon Ducks where were from, we can't stand the Oregon Ducks, we're like their arch-nemesis, if we can win, we've one a national championship and they've never won anything,” says James Faraoni, Oregon State fan.

If the beavers get past the hogs, they'll have deal with the massive Arkansas home-field advantage in a winner-take-all Game 3.

"I would hope the athletes really pay attention to how many fans are here and how much support they have, John Brengard, Arkansas fan.
