OMAHA, NEB- The Florida State Seminoles are still alive at the College World Series after opening the tournament with a loss. The 'Noles keep giving themselves a chance to play on in the double elimination part of the tournament with wins over Stony Brook and UCLA.

FSU's 4-1 win over UCLA Tuesday put the 'Noles into a rematch with Arizona.

The Wildcats beat FSU in the first game of the College World Series. That game ended 4-3 in 12 innings, so definitely a close game.

Now the 'Noles will need to beat Arizona twice, once Thursday, and again Friday to play in the championship series this weekend.

Florida State notoriously known for making the trip to Omaha 21 times, including this year, and they have yet to win the title.

But that's probably only on the fans minds at this point. For the player's it's about winning the next game.

Sophomore catcher Stephen McGhee said, "We love facing any team. Especially good teams. A team like that. We had a good game against them We felt like we could of had it. We had opportunities, and we know we can play better than we did. We just want another opportunity to come back at them and really show what we can do."

FSU takes on Arizona Thursday at 5 p.m. central.
