This week, we’ll take a quick look at each of the teams that will be making the trip to Omaha for the 2019 NCAA College World Series.
2019 record: 41-21 (17-13 ACC, 3rd ACC Atlantic)

Notes: The Noles make their 23rd trip to the College World Series, the 17th under all-time NCAA wins leader Mike Martin, who is set to retire following the season. Despite having the highest winning percentage of all-time (.726 as of 2018), 95 All-Americans, and 60-plus major leaguers, the Noles are still in search of their first NCAA title. They’ve finished runner-up three times, most recently in 1999. Only Texas (36), and Miami FL (25) have more appearances in Omaha.
