LSU claimed its fourth NCAA title as the Tigers overwhelmed Alabama,13-6, in the College World Series final. LSU became the first school to win back-to-back national championships since Stanford in 1987-88. The Tigers completed the year with a 57-13 mark while claiming the SEC title and setting the league record for most single-season victories.

The Tigers also established the NCAA record for single-season home runs, as LSU unloaded a remarkable 188 round-trippers en route to the national championship. The Tigers hit at least one home run in each of their 70 games during the regular season.

LSU joined Southern California (six titles in the 1970s) as the only other school to win four CWS crowns in one decade.
