The 2016 College World Series starts on Saturday, with the final eight teams remaining in the NCAA Baseball Tournament descending upon Omaha, Neb. in a double-elimination tournament beginning Saturday morning. There are three players picked by the Dodgers in the 2016 MLB Draft who are still alive, and here is how to follow them.

On Saturday, UC Santa Barbara will make its College World Series debut in the opening game of the tournament at noon PT, battling Oklahoma State.

Both teams have one Dodgers draftee. UCSB reliever James Carter was drafted in the 21st-round, one of six Dodgers draftees this year to come back from Tommy John surgery. He has that in common with Oklahoma State reliever Conor Costello, drafted by the Dodgers in 32nd round. He also plays outfield for the Cowboys, and hit .367/.462/.622 in 117 plate appearances.

On Sunday, Dodgers' 25th-rounder Chandler Eden is a reliever for Texas Tech, who will play TCU at noon.
