LSU Snags Top-4 Seed in NCAA Baseball Championship


The Boot will be represented in the Division I Baseball Championship this summer, as LSU was given the fourth seed in the NCAA’s summer classic. The LSU Tigers sailed into the fourth spot with a 43-17 ranking. The seeding guarantees that LSU will have home field advantage should they advance to the super-regionals — provided they win at the regional games this week. 

 

The Purple n' Gold will compete against neighboring Sothestern Louisiana as well as Texas Southern and Rice. ESPN3 and the SEC Network will air the games.

 

Along with the Tigers in the national seeds, Oregon State (1), North Carolina (2), Florida (3) Texas Tech (5), TCU (6), Louisville (7), and Stanford (8) each received a top-8 bid. The full bracket can be seen here

 

The Southeastern Conference leads the country with eight teams. Along with LSU, Arkanas, Auburn, Florida, Kentucky, Mississippi State, Texas A&M, and Vanderbilt made the cut. 

 

Like the NCAA's basketball tourney in March, the baseball championship features 64 teams playing a bracket system culminating in the 71st Men’s College World Series in Omaha. However, in keeping with the stat driven nature of baseball, the path to Nebraska is a bit more complicated then March’s single elimination.

 

The regional games will be played next weekend, June 2-5. The eight super-regional teams will be announced Tuesday, June 6, at 8AM. The College World Series is set to take place in Omaha on June 17.
