The Gophers are two victories away from their first College World Series appearance in 41 years, and their quest for a trip to Omaha, Neb., begins with the opener of a best-of-three super regional series at Oregon State.

The first pitch is scheduled for 4 p.m.

The teams will meet again at 8:30 p.m. Saturday and, if a deciding game is needed, a third game at 8 p.m. Sunday, although that game time is subject to change depending on the outcome of other super regionals.

All of the games are scheduled to be shown on ESPN2.
