Five Big 12 Teams Earn Spot in NCAA Baseball Championship

ECU wins 2018 AAC Championship

Game 4 - Game 1 victor vs. Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas and Texas Tech each earned at-large berths to the tournament.

This is the second straight year and the 10th time overall that coach Mike Fox's team will play a regional at its Boshamer Stadium.

Kentucky snubbed: The SEC is in no position to nitpick the selection committee's decisions, with a record-tying 10 teams in the tournament and the aforementioned cluster of national seeds, but it was peculiar at best to see Kentucky omitted from the field. Overall, the Conference has made 113 NCAA appearances and owns a 222-160 mark in regional play.

Game 2 - Purdue (37-19) vs. Houston (36-23), 4 p.m.

State will begin its postseason run on Friday at 7 p.m. against fourth-seeded Army. OSU will face USF at noon Friday to open the regional.




The victor advances to play the victor of the Deland Regional, hosted by Stetson, in a best-of-three Super Regional. The Longhorns earned the No. 13 overall national seed and will host No. 4-seed Texas Southern on Friday in an 8 p.m. CT contest on LHN.

This will be the second time in three years and the sixth time in program history that the Wolfpack has hosted a regional. TTU is the No. 9 national seed and faces No. 4 New Mexico State in a 1 p.m. CT first pitch on Friday.

Top seeds with the toughest roads to Omaha: Check back for a complete breakdown of all 16 regions, but it's not too early to put Ole Miss, Texas Tech and Florida State on notice. No. 2 IN and No. 3 Texas A&M are IN the opposing bracket. Duke, UNC Wilmington, Campbell and NC A&T, were also selected when the rest of the field was announced on Monday.

The South Carolina Gamecocks baseball team will begin their quest to get to the College World Series with a matchup against Ohio State.

For ECU, the regional is icing on the cake after a successful week in which it won the American Athletic Conference tournament title for the second time in four years under coach Cliff Godwin.
