South Carolina and Kent State will have to wait another day to collide in elimination game at the CWS to decide who will face Arkansas later Thursday.

OMAHA, Neb. – Ernie Banks has nothing on the 2012 College World Series.

Day 6 of the CWS was washed out by rain Wednesday and now there are three games scheduled Thursday as the five remaining teams move toward the semifinal round.

Wednesday’s game between two-time champion South Carolina and Kent State was rained out after heavy rain showers began in the downtown Omaha area right after 5 p.m. and let up briefly before another steady downpour began around 8 p.m.

The Gamecocks (47-19) and Golden Flashes (46-18) will play at 11 a.m. Thursday, with the winner of that game slated to come back and meet Arkansas (46-20) at 8 p.m. Florida State (50-16) and Arizona (45-17) take the TD Ameritrade Park diamond at 4 p.m.

All three games will be carried on ESPN2.

Arizona and Arkansas sit in the CWS driver’s seat, needing just one more win to claim a spot in the best-of-three national championship series.

There are two if-necessary game scheduled for 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. Friday if either Arizona or Arkansas loses on Thursday.
