Next Up: Baton Rouge Super Regional vs. Louisiana State
Fayetteville Regional: Arkansas

First, Isaiah Campbell one-upped TCU lefthander Nick Lodolo on Saturday, and then three pitchers combined to shut out the Horned Frogs on Sunday.
Next Up: Fayetteville Super Regional vs. Mississippi
Starkville Regional: Mississippi State
With a 5-2 win against Miami, Mississippi State completed a perfect 3-0 weekend to move on to a home super regional next weekend against Stanford or Fresno State.

Next Up: Starkville Super Regional vs. Stanford
Louisville Regional: Louisville
The Cardinals didn't make it easy, and it wasn't without controversy, but Louisville came through the losers' bracket to advance to its sixth super regional in seven years. After giving up the lead in the ninth inning on Monday, Louisville bounced back in the bottom half of the inning and freshman Alex Binelas provided the walk-off single for a 4-3 victory. Louisville advanced despite losing Saturday's winners' bracket game against Illinois State and losing closer Michael McAvene to a controversial ejection in Sunday's first game. McAvene's ejection triggered an automatic four-game suspension, two games of which will carry over into super regionals.
Next Up: Louisville Super Regional vs. East Carolina
Lubbock Regional: Texas Tech
Texas Tech is through to a super regional for the fourth time in six years after a 3-0 weekend at home. After running away from Army, 11-2, on Friday, the Red Raiders got it done with pitching in a pair of wins over Dallas Baptist by 3-2 and 3-0 scores. Next weekend, Texas Tech will be playing at home against either Oklahoma State or Connecticut, which will be decided on Monday.
Next Up: Lubbock Super Regional vs. Oklahoma State
Oklahoma City Regional: Oklahoma State
Oklahoma State received strong efforts on the mound all weekend long, holding opponents to eight runs in four games. That was especially true Monday in a 3-1 victory against a hot-hitting Connecticut. The Cowboys have been one of the hottest teams over the last month of the season and will now get the opportunity for revenge against Texas Tech, which swept them earlier this season.
Next Up: Lubbock Super Regional vs. Texas Tech
Greenville Regional: East Carolina
Upset in the regional opener by fourth-seeded Quinnipiac, East Carolina had to fight through the losers' bracket all weekend, a task made more difficult by rain that had the regional a game behind schedule the last three days. The Pirates swept upstart Campbell in a doubleheader Monday, outscoring the Camels by a combined score of 22-6 to advance to their second super regional in four years under coach Cliff Godwin.
Next Up: Louisville Super Regional vs. Louisville
Stanford Regional: Stanford
After back-to-back home regional losses the last two years, Stanford broke through this year, doing it the hard way and coming through the losers' bracket after a Saturday loss to Fresno State. The Cardinal fended off the Bulldogs on Monday in a 9-7 victory that sent it to super regionals for the first time since 2014.
Next Up: Starkville Super Regional vs. Mississippi State
Oxford Regional: Mississippi
The Rebels cruised through their home regional with a 3-0 record to advance to a super regional for the first time since 2014, which also happens to be the last time Ole Miss made a trip to the College World Series. It was really never challenged at any point, as it claimed two blowout wins against Jacksonville State and a routine win against Clemson by a combined 41-7 score. Now, the Rebels move on to take on Arkansas next weekend in Fayetteville.
Next Up: Fayetteville Super Regional vs. Arkansas
Baton Rouge Regional: Louisiana State
The Tigers got paired with a couple of potent offenses in Arizona State and Southern Mississippi for their regional, but they tamed those lineups on the way to going 3-0 and advancing to the super regional round. Coming to Baton Rouge this weekend will be Florida State.
Next Up: Baton Rouge Super Regional vs. Florida State
Chapel Hill Regional: North Carolina
The Tar Heels went 3-0 in their home regional, pushing them to a super regional and just one step away from getting to Omaha in back-to-back seasons. The three wins came in three different varieties. UNC walked off UNC Wilmington, 7-6, on Friday, blew out Liberty, 16-1, on Saturday, and won a pitchers' duel with Tennessee, 5-2, on Sunday.
Next Up: Chapel Hill Super Regional vs. Auburn
Morgantown Regional: Duke
The Blue Devils finished a sweep of the Morgantown Regional with a 4-1 win against Texas A&M. After beating two blue-chip pitchers, A&M lefthander John Doxakis and West Virginia righthander Alek Manoah, on back-to-back days, Duke closed out the regional with a sterling pitching performance of its own. In their second super regional in as many years, the Blue Devils will move on to play Vanderbilt.
Next Up: Nashville Super Regional vs. Vanderbilt
Corvallis Regional: Michigan
After a crushing loss Sunday night that saw it give up nine runs in the final two innings to Creighton to force a second regional final, Michigan on Monday bounced back in a big way. After a back-and-forth game early, the Wolverines pulled away from the Bluejays for a 17-6 victory.
