Florida State Vs. Arizona, 2012 CWS: Seminoles Open Play In Omaha

The Florida State Seminoles (48-15) will continue their quest for the program's first-ever NCAA baseball championship as they open College World Series play against the Arizona Wildcats (43-17) on Friday night. First pitch is scheduled for 9:00 p.m. ET. The game will be televised on ESPN2.
