Tennessee baseball is approaching the final weekend of the regular season with its spot in the NCAA Tournament all but locked up but there’s still plenty for the Vols left to play for as they head to South Carolina.

The Vols still have an outside shot of hosting a regional but they will need to pick up a series win this weekend and a strong week in Hoover at the SEC Tournament.

So where is Tennessee baseball projected to land in the NCAA Tournament ahead of the final weekend of the regular season?

D1Baseball projects Tennessee to be the two-seed in the Morgantown Regional. The Vols would play Notre Dame — who eliminated them in the Super Regional last year — in the first game of the regional. Tennessee would also have to get past overall six-seed West Virginia and Rider.

If the Vols get past the Morgantown Regional they would face the winner of the Columbia Regional which includes South Carolina, North Carolina, Southern California and Central Connecticut State University.

Baseball America also has Tennessee as a two-seed but in the Terre Haute Regional instead of the Morgantown Regional.

The Vols would play Iowa in the first game of the regional while also having to get past Indiana State and Wright State to advance to the super regionals.

If Tony Vitello’s sixth Tennessee team did knock off No. 16 overall seed Indiana State to win the regional they would face the winner of the Winston-Salem which includes top-seed Wake Forest, East Carolina, UC-Irvine and Davidson.

Wake Forest has been the top team in the country this season currently boasting a 43-8 (20-6 ACC) record and the nation’s best pitching staff.

Tennessee looks to improve its NCAA Tournament standing this weekend when it faces South Carolina in a three-game series in Columbia.
