OMAHA, Neb. (WHNT) — The Auburn Tigers’ incredible postseason run has come to an end in Omaha. The 14th seeded Tigers fell to SEC West foe Arkansas 11-1 in an elimination game in the College World Series.

“I didn’t want this ride to end,” Auburn coach Butch Thompson said. “Hopefully we’ve stair-stepped this program to keep fighting and having a feeling that the best is yet to come.”

Auburn (43-22) concludes a memorable season that saw the Tigers post a winning SEC record (16-13), host an NCAA regional for the first time since 2010, win a regional at home for the first time since 1999, win the Corvallis Super Regional, and win a College World Series game for the first time in 25 years.

“You can look at pen to paper from the time we’ve been here to this second and see some growth,” said Thompson, completing his seventh season on the Plains. “I absolutely think we are on the cusp of doing amazing things consistently. That’ll be the driving force, trying to leave this program in a better place.”

“It was a great experience for every one of us. We found a ton of positives out of this season. Our people stepped up to the plate for this team before we ever played a game and I’ll never forget that. I thought we returned the favor at the end of the postseason.”

The CWS semifinals are now set; it’ll be Oklahoma vs. (5) Texas A&M and Arkansas vs. Ole Miss, which means there will be at least one SEC team representing the conference in the national championship series.

The semifinals get underway Wednesday, June 21 with first pitch in game one set for 1 p.m. and game two is set to start at 6 p.m. out in Omaha.
