Social media reacts to Tennessee’s Sweet 16 game against Creighton on Friday night.

For the first time in program history, the Tennessee Volunteers sit atop the college baseball mountain as the College World Series champions. The Vols clinched the championship with a 6-5 victory over Texas A&M in Game 3 on Monday night in Omaha.

Tennessee is now the first No. 1 seed to win the College World Series since Miami did so in 1999. The win also caps a season in which Tennessee combined to win the SEC regular season and win the SEC Tournament.

Tennessee was in the Top 10 trends on X for the entire College World Series championship game, with over 65,000 tweets by midnight. The Vols’ fan base took social media by storm to express their excitement.
