College Baseball Regionals: Rice And Texas A&M Will Play Host, Matchups Still To Be Determined

A pair of late comebacks on Sunday firmly clinched spots for Rice and Texas A&M in the NCAA's baseball bracket, and they will both host regionals next week. The Texas Longhorns and TCU Horned Frogs also managed to clinch spots, and so Texas will have four different host sites for the NCAA Tournament's early rounds. The double elimination format will pit four teams in a short tournament to advance to a best-of-three super regional, and from there the teams will advance to the College World Series in Omaha.

The tournament field will come out at approximately 11:30 PM CT, and will be announced live on ESPN. Baseball America has projected Rice and Texas A&M to take the last two national seeds, at No. 7 and No. 8 respectively. It's essentially a toss up between them, Texas, Florida State, and Arizona State for three national seeds. Rice and Texas A&M should have an advantage because they won their conference tournaments and tied for their regular season conference crowns.

Rice won their crown by defeating Houston 4-3 in extra innings, with top MLB draft prospect Anthony Rendon scoring the winning run. Texas A&M won on Andrew Collazo's tenth inning walk-off homer against Missouri.
