Down goes No. 1!

The top ranked Tennessee Volunteers have been upset in the Super Regional by Notre Dame, meaning their hope to reach Omaha has ended. Instead, it’s the Fighting Irish who will head to the College World Series for the first time in 20 years.

The Irish nabbed two games in the three-game set, winning 8-6 on Friday and 7-3 in Sunday’s rubber match. The win gives Notre Dame 40 wins on the year and keeps their season alive for at least two more contests.

For the Vols, their dream season is over. Tennessee has been the No. 1 ranked team in the nation basically all year, posting a 57-9 overall record. The campaign ends a game shy of college baseball glory.

While fans love to see greatness, the Tennessee program has rubbed viewers the wrong way the entire season. The team certainly boasts confidence, but they often take things overboard.

The Vols have been known for their bat flips, arguing with umpires, and flipping off opponents. Unsurprisingly, many fans weren’t sad to see the team eliminated.

Now, we’ll get to watch the underdog get its shot in Omaha. Is there a ‘Rudy-like’ performance waiting for the Irish baseball team?

Fans have bene quick to comment on the upset. Check out the reaction on social media.

Notre Dame will try to continue their run deep in Omaha. For new, though, they’ll celebrate this monumental upset.
