2023 NCAA Baseball Tournament Projected Field Of 64


Updated after Saturday's games.

Conference championships are being handed out. Around the country conference tournaments reached their conclusion on Saturday and the last several will play their championships Sunday.

We’ll be tracking all the action and updating the Projected Field of 64 daily throughout the week.

The race for top-eight seeds looks to be well in hand. Arkansas, Clemson, Florida, LSU, Stanford, Vanderbilt and Wake Forest have been in strong shape all week. That leaves just one spot and while Miami or Oklahoma State possibly could grab it over Virginia with a conference tournament championship, the Cavaliers earlier this season swept the Hurricanes and finished ahead in the ACC standings and would hold an RPI edge on the Cowboys.

The race for the rest of the host spots remains red hot. It's very crowded at the back of the host line, with the likes of Campbell, Dallas Baptist and East Carolina trying to break down the door. South Carolina will feel snubbed if it doesn't host with a top-10 RPI and a winning SEC record, as would Boston College if it doesn't with a top-20 RPI in the Northeast and a winning ACC record. But there can only be 16 hosts.

The tournament bubble has tightened and could get even tighter Sunday if East Carolina or DBU lose their championship games. In today's update, there's only one change to the at-large field as UC Santa Barbara falls out after getting swept at Hawaii this weekend and Louisiana-Lafayette enters after a run to the Sun Belt Tournament championship game has pushed it into the top 50 in RPI.
