OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The College World Series opens on Saturday with Texas playing UC Irvine in the afternoon and Louisville taking on Vanderbilt at night.

The afternoon game matches the 75-year-old Augie Garrido of Texas against 74-year-old Anteaters coach Mike Gillespie.

It's been an improbable run to the CWS for both. Texas (43-19) went from last place in the Big 12 in 2013 to fifth, beat old rival Texas A&M twice in regionals and swept Houston in super regionals.

UC Irvine (40-23) lost eight of its last nine in the regular season and was one of the final four at-large teams picked for the NCAA tournament. The Anteaters won at No. 1 national seed Oregon State in regionals and knocked off Oklahoma State on the road to reach the CWS.
