5 Pac-12 baseball teams prep for NCAA Regionals this weekend

Jun 3, 2022

The Road to Omaha gets underway this weekend for five Pac-12 baseball squads who made the field of 64, tied for the third most among all conferences.  Here's a look ahead to what each of the five schools have in store for the double-elimination regional round.

NCAA Stanford Regional hosted by Stanford 

The Pac-12 regular season and tournament champions will be playing at home this weekend as the No. 2 overall seed.  It's the 20th time in school history that Stanford will host an NCAA Regional and they're the only school to host in each of the last five years.  The Cardinal will take their 16-game winning streak into Friday's match-up with America East champion Binghamton. 

Texas State from the Sun Belt is the No. 2 seed on the Farm this weekend and the Bobcats already have experience at a Pac-12 campus this season, taking two of three from Arizona in Tucson at the beginning of March.  Big West champion UC Santa Barbara is the No. 3 seed, the second time in the last three years the Gauchos have been assigned to the Stanford Regional.  UCSB was 2-6 against Pac-12 schools this season, splitting a 4-game weekend series with Oregon in Eugene but was swept by both UCLA and USC in weekday home and home matchups.

Auburn is hosting the regional as the No. 14 national seed, playing postseason baseball in front of the home crowd for the first time since 2010.  When the Tigers face the Bruins it will be the first ever meeting for these two programs and Auburn's first postseason match-up with a Pac-12 team since Arizona in 1993.  Southeastern Louisiana enters as the Southland Conference Tournament champions, making NCAA postseason play for the sixth time at the Division I level.  The Lions have also never faced UCLA and the last time the Bruins faced a team from the Southland Conference was in 2010 when Gerrit Cole had 15 strikeouts against Texas A&M Corpus Christi.
