The wolves are Friday.
Minutes before the first game of the University World Series between North Carolina State University and Vanderbilt University on Friday, the game was postponed due to COVID-19 concerns. North Carolina State University was forced to detain some players and can choose to abandon the game and try again in the winner-takes-all game against the brigadier on Saturday.
But North Carolina State University voted by an overwhelming majority instead of abstaining, and only allowed 13 players to participate in the game: 9 position players and 4 pitchers, which is much lower than the 36 players who are usually rostered and active on game day.
North Carolina announced that it has placed an unknown number of players in the COVID-19 agreement.

North Carolina State University has a chance to beat Vanderbilt University and win the admission ticket to the first college World Series final next week, and win on Friday. If not, there is still a chance to eliminate Commodores on Saturday.
