We learned yesterday that Texas A&M would host an NCAA Tournament Regional, and today we learned what seed they landed, and who they’ll host at Olsen Field this weekend. The Aggies are the No. 5 national seed, and will host TCU, Louisiana and Oral Roberts beginning this Thursday.
(5) COLLEGE STATION REGIONAL— SEC Baseball (@SECbaseball) May 30, 2022
1. Texas A&M
4. Oral Roberts
Paired with Louisville
The presence of TCU in this regional is particularly juicy, a the Horned Frogs have been a thorn in the Aggies’ postseason side for more than a decade. TCU defeated A&M on their way to winning the College Station Regional in 2012, beat the Aggies in Super Regionals in back-to-back years in 2015 and 2016, and beat them when both teams made it to the College World Series in 2017. Luckily, head coach Jim Schlossnagle is on the good guys’ side this time around.
A&M’s No. 5 seed is important because it is a “national seed.” That means if they advance out of this weekend’s regional, they would also host a Super Regional in College Station. If that happens, and if seeding holds, A&M would face No. 12 Louisville. It would be the first time that the Ags hosted a Super since 2017, which just so happens to be the last time they advanced to the College World Series in Omaha.
