College World Series 2012: Stony Brook Will Face UCLA In First Round

The Stony Brook Seawolves (52-13) know their first opponent in the 2012 College World Series: the UCLA Bruins (47-14).

Stony Brook advanced to the program's first ever College World Series by defeating the No. 7 national seed LSU Tigers 2-1 in their series in the Baton Rouge Super Regional. The No. 2 national seed UCLA took care of TCU in two games in the Los Angeles Super Regional, outscoring the Horned Frogs 10-3 in the pair of games. The Bruins will be making their fourth College World Series appearance and second in the last three seasons.

Stony Brook is just the second No. 4 seed from a regional to advance to the College World Series since the field expanded to 64 teams in 1999. Fresno State, which went on to win the national title in 2008, was the other team to be a regional No. 4 seed.

Stony Brook will meet UCLA on Friday in Omaha, Neb. The game is set for 5 p.m. ET and will be televised on ESPN2.
