Tennessee baseball has broken its single-season program record set in 2022 of 57 wins, as the Vols earned their 58th win of the 2024 season Wednesday evening in Omaha.

Tennessee defeated Florida State, 7-2, to punch its ticket to the College World Series Finals, where the Vols will battle either Florida or Texas A&M. The win also improved Tennessee’s season record to 58-12.

The Big Orange tied its previous single-season wins record Sunday night with a 6-1 win over North Carolina.

As historic as Tennessee’s 2022 season was, this year’s Vols are slowly but surely etching their name into the program record books more than the team two years ago. In the Vols’ win over Evansville in the Super Regional Final, they set the single-season program home run record. Second baseman Christian Moore has also set the single-season home run record with 33 bombs on the year.

And now, Tennessee is off to a 3-0 start in Omaha, the best start to a run in Omaha in program history. Additionally, Tennessee has reached the College World Series Finals for the second time in program history and first time since 1951.

After a thrilling 12-11 win over Florida State last Friday in which the Big Orange used a four-run ninth inning rally to complete the comeback, Tennessee has handled North Carolina and Florida State in a pair of stress-free wins.

The Vols are in prime position heading into the Finals, as they will be able to reset their pitching plan for the weekend. Texas A&M will be able to do the same if it beats Florida Wednesday night. There’s no doubt Tennessee is rooting for the Aggies and Gators to play in an elimination game on Thursday in Omaha.

Tennessee will return to Charles Schwab Field Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPN.
