TALLAHASSEE, FL -

Sam Travis hit a tie breaking two-run homer, and Indiana beat Florida State 11-6 on Sunday to reach the College World Series for the first time in school history.

The Hoosiers (48-14) made the NCAA tournament for just the third time and were playing in their first super regional. But they played with plenty of poise on the road, sweeping the Seminoles.

Will Coursen-Carr (5-0) pitched four innings of relief for Indiana, allowing just one earned run. Coursen-Carr earned the win in the Big Ten tournament final, regional title game and super regional clincher.

After Florida State (47-17) scored three runs in the top of the fifth to tie the game 5-5, Travis gave the Hoosiers the lead for good in the bottom of the inning. Scott Sitz (10-2) allowed seven runs, six of them earned, in 4 1-3 innings.

The Hoosiers will meet Louisville in their first game in Omaha.
