When Oregon State won their first College Baseball World Series in 2006, Oregon State faced an elimination game no fewer than six times.
The Beavs will be trying to conjure up some of that mojo today -- and Monday.
Oregon State faces an elimination game -- their first of a possible three win-or-go-home contests -- at 12 p.m. today against Texas A&M, a team that will be looking for revenge after OSU came out on top 9-8 in their meeting on Friday. The Aggies defeating Wright State in 11 innings on Saturday to stay alive.
If Oregon State beats A&M, they'll have just enough time to grab a bite and then lace 'em up, with another elimination game slated for 5 p.m. Sunday and a second shot at TCU.
IF THE BEAVS win both games today, they would need to face TCU one more time on Monday. The winner moves on to the Super Regional, a best of three series starting either June 5 or June 6.
There is no TV for the today or Monday (if necessary) but all games are available via webcast, for free.

If the Beavs win, the second game video will be available HERE.
WHAT CASEY WOULD like to see available today would be some hot black and orange bats. The Beavers produced just two hits off the TCU starter over eight innings and broke up a possible no-hit bit in the sixth.
And some hard-to-hit junk wouldn't hurt either. TCU scored a combined six runs in the second through fifth innings. They tacked on seven more in the ninth for the final 13-1 score.
OSU came alive during the postseason on the way to the 2007 CWS title but still had their win-or-go-home moments. After posting a losing record in Pac-10 play during the regular season, the Beavs faced elimination three times in the regionals and super regionals. They then went 5-0 in the CWS, capping the NCAA championship season at 49-18 .
