NU Banks on Komine in Clash With Titans
There's really only one thing Nebraska junior Shane Komine could do today as a proper encore after his last pitching performance. He could go out and win the biggest game in school history. Anything less would be a significant letdown - for Komine and about 25,000 fans in red at Rosenblatt Stadium. Nebraska's 5-foot-10 ace takes the mound at 6 p.m. as the Huskers face Cal State Fullerton in one of the most anticipated College World Series games ever.

Nebraska's baseball team got a glimpse Thursday night of the home-field advantage it can expect to enjoy in its College World Series opener tonight.

A reported-estimated 10,000 fans turned out for the opening ceremonies, 2,000 more than last year.

Avs Overwhelm Devils, Force Game Seven
Ray Bourque's guarantee was as good as Adam Foote's goal -- the Colorado Avalanche are going home for Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals. Foote had a goal and two assists and Patrick Roy, never straying an inch from the net, turned aside a flurry of early New Jersey shots as the Avalanche prevented the Devils from clinching the cup with a series-tying 4-0 victory Thursday night.
World-Herald CWS Special Section: Husker Trip Gives Hope to Others
Nebraska's first CWS appearance is giving hope to schools outside of the South and West. Bob Todd sees more than just a nice story. "I'm glad to see Nebraska overcome what it did to make it to Omaha," said Todd, a member of the NCAA Baseball Committee. In defying the odds to get to the CWS, NU has become the poster boy for college baseball's downtrodden. Dave Van Horn took a program that couldn't even make it to its conference tourney and turned it into a contender for college baseball's ultimate prize.
