I'm a little confused, why is Oregon State the visiting team tonight? I thought they way it worked is whoever wasn't home team yesterday was today and the higher seed was home if both were home team yeaterday?

I believe it is a coin flip

The seeds only determine the home team for the first game. After that it is determined by a coin flip. If there is a rematch in the title round then the team that was not the home team in the first game is the home team in the rematch.

For first-round games during championship competition, the highest-seeded team shall be designated as the home team. In subsequent games, the home team shall be determined according to a formula applied by the games committee.
In determining which of two teams in any game will be the home team, the games committee or the NCAA game representative shall designate the home team using the following guidelines:
1. The institution that has been the home team the fewer number of times in that particular tournament.
2. If the two teams are equal in this respect but unequal in the number of times they were the visitor, then the team that has been the visitor more often will be designated the home team.
3. If the two teams are equal in the number of times that they have been home and visitor, the games committee or the NCAA game representative shall observe the
following procedures in the order stated:
a. If the two teams have met previously in that particular tournament, the visitor in the previous game shall be the home team in the game in question;
b. The team that was visitor in its preceding game shall be the home team, unless both teams were visitors in their preceding games; or
c. If the above procedures do not resolve the matter, the home team shall be determined by coin flip. The higher seeded team can determine whether they will call the coin toss, or defer the call to their opponent.
During the pre-championship meeting for the regionals and super regionals, the host institution must designate whether the first or third base dugout will be the home team dugout for the entire tournament. For the Men’s College World Series, the third base dugout will serve as the home team dugout.
The home team shall occupy the home team dugout designated in the pre-championship meeting, take infield practice first and select the uniform/jersey it decides to wear. It is the responsibility of the visiting team to wear a uniform of contrasting color. The NCAA game representative will resolve any conflict in the selection of uniforms.
For the College World Series Finals, if one team advances to the finals with no losses and the other team has one loss, then the undefeated team would be provided the choice in game one of selecting to be either the home or visiting team for the best-of-three series. The other team not receiving the choice in game one would be designated as the opposite option for game two (e.g., if the team with the choice in game one chooses to be the home team, then in game two the team not receiving the choice in game one would be the home team). The home team for game three, if necessary, would be determined by a coin flip prior to the game. If both teams enter the CWS Finals either undefeated or with one loss, then the home team for game one will be determined by a coin flip at a designated time prior to the game. The other team not designated as the home team in game one would be the home team in game two of the CWS Finals. If the CWS Finals goes to a third game, the home team for game three (if necessary) would be determined by another coin flip prior to the game. Please note that for any required coin toss, the higher seeded team can determine whether they will call the coin toss, or defer the call to their opponent.

Unless the Gametracker is wrong, Texas is home team again after being home yesterday. Any idea why?
