Severe thunderstorms around Omaha, NE, are causing scheduling troubles at the 2024 Men’s College World Series this week.

Tennessee’s semifinal game against Florida State has been pushed back to 3:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday instead of the original 2:00 p.m. ET start time.

An elimination game between Kentucky and Florida that was set for Tuesday night will now be played on Wednesday morning at 11:00 a.m. ET due to the storms on Tuesday night in Omaha.

As some keen fans have pointed out on social media, though, Wednesday is still going to be a challenge with the weather.

According to The Weather Channel’s forecast for Omaha at 6:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday, there are thunderstorms slated for 12 midnight to 2:00 a.m. on Wednesday with showers projected from 3:00 a.m. ET to 1:00 p.m. ET that afternoon.

It doesn’t look like there will be rain in the forecast for Tennessee’s game in the afternoon slot but it does seem plausible that Kentucky-Florida could again be pushed back if there is too much rain on Wednesday morning.

UPDATE: 8:00 a.m. ET on Wednesday – Storms in Omaha have not developed this morning like they were projected to on Tuesday night. That provides optimism for Kentucky-Florida to start on time, leading to the previously mentioned 3:00 p.m. ET start time.

Tennessee will take on Florida State in a rematch from their College World Series opener on Wednesday. If Tennessee can beat Florida State in either game one or game two of the semifinals, they will have punched their ticket to the College World Series finals.

Florida State survived an elimination game on Tuesday afternoon with a 9-5 victory over North Carolina to send the Tar Heels packing.

Texas A&M, on the other hand, will await the winner of Kentucky-Florida on the other side of the bracket.
