First it was a Super Regional surprise elimination of No. 1 Tennessee in Knoxville. Then came Friday’s gem of a College World Series opener against perennial power Texas.

Now Notre Dame is suddenly the golden-helmeted darling of the college baseball world heading into Sunday’s winner’s bracket game against Oklahoma at Charles Schwab Field in Omaha, Neb.

The Irish (41-15) and Sooners (43-22) are both unseeded underdogs crashing the eight-team, double-elimination CWS tournament and are each two wins away from the final series. Sunday’s winner will advance to play 2 pm Wednesday in the winner’s bracket while the loser will play an elimination game at 2 pm Tuesday.
