After getting off to a 2-0 start in the College World Series for the first time in program history, NC State is three wins away from a National Championship. Alec and Andrew break down the road ahead and what the Pack9 must do against Vanderbilt to advance to the Best of 3 Finals.

What were the guys' thoughts on the first two games for the Pack? Who should start for NC State on Friday and (possibly) Saturday against the Commodores? Will State see Vandy's 1-2 punch of Kumar Rocker and Jack Leiter -- and does the Pack even care?

We discuss it all on this week's episode of Sawyer & Ciencin ahead of one of the biggest weeks in NC State baseball history!
