The UCLA baseball team won’t just be playing for their first College World Series championship when they embark on their fourth trip to Omaha this week.
The Bruins are playing for the Cup.
With the athletic program ranked sixth in the Capital One Cup rankings – thanks to top-10 finishes in volleyball, tennis, golf, soccer and water polo – a title run in the CWS would give UCLA a shot to hoist the trophy.
Florida might stand in the way, as the Gators are not only ranked No. 1 in the current Capital One Cup rankings, but also head to Omaha. The Cup will be presented at the Espy’s on July 11, and the prize includes $400,000 in scholarship money for student-athletes.
