Peyton Stovall drove in four runs and Connor Noland pitched 7 2/3 strong innings as Arkansas routed second-seeded Stanford 17-2 on Saturday in the College World Series at Omaha, Neb.

Chris Lanzilli hit a three-run homer and Cayden Wallace smacked a two-run shot and drove in three overall for the Razorbacks (44-19). Michael Turner had four hits for Arkansas, which racked up 21 overall.

The Razorbacks will face either Auburn or Ole Miss on Monday night. Those teams were playing later Saturday. Stanford plays the loser on Monday in an elimination game.

Noland (8-5) gave up two runs and six hits. Stanford starter Alex Williams (8-4) gave up five runs and eight hits in 4 1/3 innings.

The score was tied at after four innings before Arkansas began piling on with a five-run fifth inning.

Brock Jones homered for the Cardinal (47-17).
