College: A Look at the Super Regionals

College: A Look at the Super Regionals

Ten of the sixteen #1 seeds in regional play are moving on to the super regionals with 1 still yet to be decided due to rain (Texas A&M). Not a single #4 seed moved on, but four #3 seeds (California, Dallas Baptist, UC Irvine, and Mississippi St) will be moving on. Only 1 of the top eight national seeds to start the tournament will be watching the rest at home (Rice).

The Super Regionals have some intriguing match ups. Two #3 seeds will face off with the winner advancing to the College World Series. Dallas Baptist, in only its 6th year as a Division I independent, is in its first Super Regional. The success of the program is not new. DBU, a former NAIA school, played in 10 NAIA World Series tournaments from 1984-2002 and finished runner-up twice.

The #1 overall seed Virginia leads the nation with 52 wins. Stanford and California (#5 and #6 in the Pac-10 standings) have the fewest wins among any remaining team with 35. The Pac-10 has 4 (maybe 5 with Arizona) teams left in the tourney. The SEC also has 4 followed by the ACC with 1, the Big 12 with 1 (maybe 2 with Texas A&M), the Big East 1 (Connecticut), the Big West 1 (UC Irvine), and 1 independent (Dallas Baptist).

Texas A&M and Arizona will play their decisive game on Tuesday with the winner advancing to face Florida St.
