Arkansas baseball vs. Oregon State: How to watch, stream, listen

Time may have healed wounds for the Arkansas baseball team as most of the Diamond Hogs players from their 2018 team are long gone.

But fans remain, as does coach Dave Van Horn. Emotion come Friday night when the Razorbacks play Oregon State in a rematch of that national championship series will be high.

The Beavers captured the 2018 crown despite Arkansas being one out away from a title in Game 2 of the series that year. The most famous foul ball dropped, OSU had another turn and rallied. Game 3, Arkansas’ dejection was too much and the Hogs barely showed up.

Little of that, technically, matters Friday night when the teams meet in the College Baseball Classic in Arlington, except for fans and the former players. The world of college baseball in 2024 will keep their eyes on it, though. Arkansas is the No. 2 team in the country and the Beavers are also ranked in the top 10.

Neither team’s season will hinge on Friday’s result, but it very well could be a rewind preview: if the two were to meet again in Omaha, the fireworks would be grand.

Again.

Here’s how you can catch the action. You won’t be happy.
