Just a few minutes earlier Monday night, former Husker head coach Dave Van Horn's Arkansas Razorbacks sealed up a spot in the CWS. Van Horn has now lead the Hogs to Omaha five times. 

Meanwhile, Texas Tech clinched a spot with a win over Duke on Monday afternoon. It's the Red Raiders' third trip to Omaha in the last five years. 

Texas is headed back to TD Ameritrade Park for the first time in four years after holding off Tennessee Tech in game three of the Austin Super Regional. 

On Saturday, North Carolina completed the sweep of Stetson to be the first team to earn their spot in the eight-team field. 

Later on Saturday, Oregon State rallied to beat Minnesota and protect their home field and advance to Omaha for the seventh time ever.

In a thriller, Washington defeated Cal State Fullerton in 10 innings to advance to the CWS for the first time, winning the series 2-1 on the road. 

Not far behind was another extra-inning winner-take-all game, Mississippi State defeated Vanderbilt 10-6 in an 11-inning thriller to win the series 2-1 against its SEC foe.
