CWS 2014: Top Players to Watch in TCU-Ole Miss Battle

Published by on June 19, 2014

Thursday's College World Series battle between TCU and Ole Miss will be the last game of the season for the loser, so you know both sides will be ready to compete.

Each team is in this position after losing to Virginia in Omaha. Ole Miss lost by one in its first game of this round, while TCU fell on a walk-off sacrifice fly in the 15th inning. While the winner will get a chance for revenge, the loser will officially be eliminated.

There will be a lot of pressure on each team, but these players are the ones who must truly step up to lead their squads to victory.
