June 22, 2015

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Many preseason prognosticators believed Vanderbilt and Virginia had what it took to reach the College World Series finals again.

That the defending champion Commodores (50-19) returned is testament to their dominant pitching and the steady effort of a veteran group that got every opponent's best shot.

That the Cavaliers (42-23) ended up here is nothing short of a surprise given all the obstacles they had to overcome along the way.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Fans at the College World Series are encouraged to text guest services staff at TD Ameritrade Park if they encounter problems near their seats.

Examples of problems guest services want to know about are impaired fans, altercations and abusive language.

Metropolitan Entertainment and Convention Authority President and CEO Roger Dixon said the text system has been tested at several events at the adjacent CenturyLink Center and has proved to be helpful.

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska coach Mike Riley says linebacker David Santos and two other players won't return to the Cornhuskers.

Santos had major knee surgery after starting eight games last season and 19 in his career. Riley didn't say in a statement Thursday why Santos wouldn't be back for his senior season.

Riley also says that safety LeRoy Alexander and receiver Jariah Tolbert will transfer.

Alexander was suspended for the entire 2014 season for an undisclosed reason. Tolbert was charged with marijuana possession in June 2014 and again this past April.
