The No. 8 ranked University of Louisville baseball team arrived in Omaha, Neb., Wednesday evening for the program's first ever appearance at the College World Series. U of L will face the No. 2 seeded Rice Owls in the 2007 College World Series opener Friday at 2 p.m. ET at historic Rosenblatt Stadium and the game will be televised nationally by ESPN2.

The Cards (46-22) opened Wednesday by meeting with reporters and practicing for the final time at Jim Patterson Stadium before Friday's series opener against Rice (54-12). After arriving at Omaha Eppley Airfield at approximately 4:30 p.m. CT, the Cardinal players, coaches and support staff visited Rosenblatt Stadium for the first time prior to checking-in to the official team hotel.

U of L advanced to Omaha with Sunday's impressive 20-2 victory over Oklahoma State in the third and decisive game of the Super Regional. Prior to that, the Cards advanced through the Columbia (Mo.) Regional with back-to-back wins over No. 1 seeded Missouri. Rice returns to Omaha for the second consecutive year and the fourth time in the last six years after winning all five of its game in the 2007 NCAA tournament. The Owls won the 2003 College World Series championship, the school's first NCAA team title in any sport.
