Four ACC Teams Set for NCAA Super Regionals
GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – Four Atlantic Coast Conference teams have advanced to the final 16 of the NCAA Division I Baseball Championship and will continue play in the Super Regionals this weekend.
No. 4 Virginia Tech and No. 10 North Carolina will serve as Super Regional hosts, while No. 12 Louisville and Notre Dame will play on the road.
Three of the best-of-three series get underway on Friday. Virginia Tech (44-12) will welcome Oklahoma (40-21) to Blacksburg for a 3 p.m. game. Notre Dame (38-14) opens at top-seeded Tennessee (56-7) at 6 p.m., while Louisville (42-19-1) has an 8:30 p.m. date at No. 5 Texas A&M (40-18).
UNC (42-20) opens against Arkansas (41-19) at 11 a.m. on Saturday.
A total of eight Super Regionals are scheduled this weekend. Each will be a best-of-three format, with the winners advancing to Omaha, Nebraska, for the Men’s College World Series on June 17-27 at Charles Schwab Field Omaha.
Virginia Tech is making it first-ever NCAA Super Regional appearance. This year marks the 10th appearance for UNC and the third in the past four seasons. Louisville is among the final 16 of the NCAA Tournament for the ninth time. Notre Dame, which reached the Super Regional round last year for the first time since 2002, will be appearing in back-to-back years for the first time in program history.
The ACC placed at least one team in each of the previous 15 College World Series and multiple conference teams made the trip to Omaha 10 times during that span. A total of 28 ACC teams – nearly a quarter of the total field – have earned CWS berths since 2006.
Nine ACC teams were selected to compete in the 2022 NCAA Tournament, tying for the most of any conference. The ACC has placed at least six teams in the NCAA tournament for 18 straight years. This marks the sixth year since 2010 that at least eight ACC teams have landed spots in the field.
