FSU baseball regional, super-regional opponents announced

For the seventh time under Mike Fox, North Carolina baseball has earned a National Seed for the NCAA tournament. The Mountaineers finished fourth in the Big 12 with a 12-12 conference record and reached the conference tournament semifinals. The survivors of the brackets play a best-of-three games national championship series to decide the NCAA champion. OH earned its lone trip to the NCAA College World Series in 1970, going 2-2. Holy Cross is in the postseason for the first time since 1978 after winning the Patriot League tournament over Bucknell.

The Lexington Regional victor will face the Louisville Regional victor the next week in the Super Regional round. The Tigers (39-19) and second-seeded Vanderbilt (33-22) are the favorites to win that regional. The Bears drew the No. 2 seed in the Fayetteville (Ark.) Regional as part of the 64-team NCAA field that was announced Monday morning. The committee mixed things up a bit this time around, however, as the Tallahassee regional is matched up with the Lubbock, Texas regional, which is being hosted by the Texas Tech Red Raiders, the No. 5 overall seed in the country. Nebraska (35-20) also was a second seed, but in the Oregon State Regional.

The double-elimination Tallahassee Regional will last until at least Sunday and could go through Monday. Despite losing the first four games of the season by a total of five runs the Cats bounced back with a stretch of 21 wins in 24 games that included three-game sweeps of No. 23 UC Santa Barbara and at No. 11 Texas A&M.

West Virginia is among seven Big 12 teams to earn a postseason berth.

Arkansas is back in the national tournament field after missing it previous year for the first time since 2001.
