2012 C-USA Tournament Bracket: Rice Earns Top Seed, Houston No. 8

The Conference USA regular season baseball season has come to a close and Rice took two of three from Central Florida to clinch the overall seed for the C-USA post season tournament. Houston snuck into the tournament by holding of Marshall for the eighth and final spot.

Conference USA holds their tournament in pool play rather than bracket form, so each team will play three games within their pod and the team with the best record in each pod earns a spot in the championship game.

Here are the pods:


Pod 2 Pod 2
No. 1 Rice No. 2 UCF
No. 4 Southern Miss No. 3 Tulane
No. 5 Memphis No. 6 East Carolina
No. 8 Houston No. 7 UAB
