NCAA Regional Projections (May 21)

In this week’s regional projections from The College Baseball Blog, the top six national seeds remain unchanged.  The LSU Tigers keep their top national seed after finishing the regular season as the SEC co-champion.  Texas, UC Irvine, North Carolina, Cal State Fullerton, and Arizona State maintain the two through six seeds respectively.  The two new national seeds this week are SEC regular season co-champion Ole Miss and ACC regular season champion Florida State.

New regional hosts were awarded to Louisville and Minnesota this week.  The Cardinals have been on a tear lately, taking the regular season championship in the Big East.  The Gophers finished just a half-game back of Ohio State in the Big Ten regular season race after losing a conference game due to weather.
