Tar Heels Going to Omaha

The North Carolina baseball team is heading to the College World Series for the fifth time in six years. The Tar Heels grabbed an early lead Saturday against Stanford and hung on through lousy weather to sweep the best of three series in the NCAA super regional. Head coach Mike Fox says his team earned another trip to Nebraska.

Mike Fox: "It's fitting the way that we had to do it, its fitting to our season, all the obstacles and hurdles we've had to overcome and you throw on top of that a three and a half hour rain delay, we're looking forward to going to the new stadium in Omaha, seeing it up close and personal."
The first round of World Series games begins Saturday.
