Texas is one of seven Big 12 Conference teams advanced to post-season play and one of four league teams to receive No. 1 seeds in their respective Regionals.
Oklahoma is the top seed in the Norman Regional while Oklahoma State is the top seed in the Fayeteville, Arkansas Regional. Nebraska also received a No. 1 seed and will host a Regional. Baylor is the No. 3 seed and travels to top-seeded Rice while Missouri is the fourth-seed in the Pepperdine Regional. Surprising Kansas was awarded a No. 2 Regional seed after winning its first Big 12 Tournament Sunday and advances to the Corvallis, Oregon Regional.
Thirty-seven of the Top Eight national seeds have advanced to the College World Series during the past five years, but the last two national champs (Texas, Cal-State Fullerton) were not Top Eight seeds.
The Austin Regional is slated to begin Friday, June 2 and will conclude Monday.
