Any regional that gets an SEC team going on the road as a No. 2 seed is a tough regional. So we've had that happen four times already.
The most interesting one has the UCLA regional with defending champ LSU gets sent to L.A., with UC Irvine the No. 3 seed and Kent State as a dangerous No. 4 seed.
Vanderbilt hits the road at Louisville, where the surprise is Missouri Valley Conference champion Illinois State getting the No. 3 seed. Mississippi has to go to Virginia, where the Cavaliers are the top seed and No. 5 national overall seed. And Alabama goes to Georgia Tech for a tough regional that also includes Elon, a bubble team that got in.
Oregon State is the other "bubble in" as the No. 3 seed at Florida. Good for Bethune-Cookman and Florida Atlantic to go to a different regional, rather than their usual trips to Coral Gables.
