OMAHA, Neb. − Tennessee baseball is off a good start in the College World Series.

The Vols (56-12) face North Carolina (48-14) on Sunday (7 p.m. ET, ESPN2) in their second CWS game after winning 12-11 against Florida State on Friday. UT walked off the Seminoles on a ninth-inning single from Dylan Dreiling to cap a four-run inning that erased a three-run deficit.

UT and UNC have not played since the 2019 Chapel Hill Regional. The Vols lost 5-2 in the regional final in the first postseason appearance under coach Tony Vitello.
