Tennessee baseball and head coach Tony Vitello have the evening time slot on Friday night for their opening game in the 2024 Men’s College World Series.

No. 1 Tennessee will take on No. 8 Florida State at 7:00 p.m. ET from Charles Schwab Field in Omaha, Nebraska.

The Vols and the Seminoles will be the second game on Friday as No. 4 North Carolina and No. 12 Virginia kick off the College World Series at 2:00 p.m. ET.

No. 2 Kentucky will take on the winner of Monday night’s contest between No. 7 Georgia and No. 10 NC State at 2:00 p.m. ET on Saturday while No. 3 Texas A&M and Florida square off at 7:00 p.m. ET that same night.

All four games will be broadcast on ESPN.

As you might be able to tell, the 2024 Men’s College World Series ended up being a version of an SEC-ACC Invitational.

If Tennessee Wins Game 1

If Tennessee defeats Florida State in their opening game, the Vols will move on to Game 6 on Sunday, June 16, to take on the winner of the North Carolina-Virginia game.

Game 6 is slated for 7:00 p.m. ET on Sunday and will be televised on ESPN.

If Tennessee Loses Game 1

If Florida State defeats Tennessee, the Vols will then move to Game 5 in an elimination game against the loser of North Carolina-Virginia.

Game 5 is slated for 2:00 p.m. ET on Sunday and will be televised on ESPN.
