Here's the way the regionals match up in super regionals:
Arizona State regional winner vs. Arkansas regional winner (ASU is the top national seed and would host). Two Pac-10 teams among those eight schools.
Auburn regional winner vs. Georgia Tech regional winner. Two ACC and two SEC teams among the eight squads here.
Virginia regional and the Oklahoma regional are matched, with two ACC teams involved in the eight.
The South Carolina regional matches up with the Coastal Carolina regional, which comes as no surprise. The only surprise is there is no SEC team sent to Coastal, while there are two ACC teams in these two regionals.
The right side of the bracket has the Texas regional winner against the winner of the Texas Christian regional. Two Big 12 teams involved.
The Connecticut regional winner meets the Louisville regional winner, and it seems like this is the reason UConn is a host and not a No. 1 seed. The Big East's best two teams would meet in a super regional; if this happened with Big West teams or Pac-10 teams, we would hear all about it.
The UCLA regional matches up with the Fullerton regional. Commence gnashing of teeth from West Coast fans. They're right on this one. The Titans' strong finish could have merited a better matchup, but the Big West was weak this year, and Fullerton's early struggles hurt its chances of being a national seed.
Finally, the Miami regional matches up with the Florida regional. Those teams already met this season in a three-game set in Coral Gables, and the Gators won it.
