How to watch today's North Carolina Tar Heels vs Florida Seminoles NCAA Baseball game: Live stream, TV channel, and start time

Fourth-seeded North Carolina Tar Heels (48-15) will look to keep their national championship dreams alive against No. 8 seed Florida State Seminoles (48-16) in an elimination game on Tuesday at the College World Series in a battle of Atlantic Coast Conference foes.

Following a 6-1 loss to Tennessee on Sunday night, the Tar Heels have put themselves in a spot where they have to beat the Seminoles who eliminated Virginia from the tournament with a 7-3 win in the loser's bracket last time out.

The winner will face off against Tennessee again, needing to beat the Volunteers twice to make the College World Series Finals while the loser heads home. UNC and FSU didn't face off in the regular season, but the Heels are 1-2 in three NCAA Tournament games against the 'Noles.

North Carolina vs Florida Team News & Key Performers

North Carolina Tar Heels

Tar Heels' manager Scott Forbes told the media that he will likely turn to pitcher Aiden Haugh as the starter for this must-win game after both Jason DeCaro and Shea Sprague were already utilised in the previous games.

Haugh has been UNC's third starter on the weekend since April, so he does have that starter experience. He's 4–2, with a 4.54 ERA splitting time between the starting rotation and bullpen for the Tar Heels. The Tar Heels will also have the advantage out of the bullpen. Closer Dalton Pence wasn't used in the loss to the Volunteers, making him fresher for Tuesday's elimination game.

If UNC were to beat Florida State, they could turn to Jason DeCaro on Wednesday for another must-win game to save their season.

Florida Seminoles

Florida State are likely have junior right-hander Conner Whittaker (5-0, 4.94 ERA) on the mound as he did not factor into the decision against the Tennessee Volunteers. He threw 3.1 innings and allowed three runs on six hits with zero walks and four strikeouts.
