After 10 teams from the Southeastern Conference joined the masses and entered the ring on Friday, only three SEC competitors are left standing on Monday morning with a few more waiting to see if they can triumph forward or will fall into elimination.
Tennessee advanced to the Super Regional round this weekend after defeating (4) Clemson and Charlotte en route to the Clemson Regional victory. (15) South Carolina and (16) Alabama have also punched their tickets to the Super Regional round after winning the Columbia and Tuscaloosa Regionals, respectively.
Alabama will now travel to (1) Wake Forest while South Carolina potentially awaits an SEC East foe.
(6) Vanderbilt and (13) Auburn are the only two SEC teams that were eliminated from their home sites prior to the end of Sunday. Oregon advanced out of the Nashville Region while Auburn’s loss opened up the door to Tennessee potentially hosting the Super Regional round. The Vols will take on the winner of Southern Miss and Penn, which will be played on Monday afternoon.
Speaking of games being played on Monday, there are quite a few of them. Bad weather forced several host sites into alternate plans throughout the weekend with anywhere from seven to nine games happening on Monday.
Texas A&M will have a winner-take-all contest on Monday night against (8) Stanford to determine the winner of the Stanford Regional. (12) Kentucky, meanwhile, will have a winner-take-all game against Indiana on Monday evening to determine a winner of the Lexington Regional.
(2) Florida is also gearing up for a massive winner-take-all game against Texas Tech as the Gators try to defend home dirt in the Gainesville Regional. Florida would then host South Carolina in the Super Regional round if so.
The final two teams left to discuss are (3) Arkansas and (5) LSU. Arkansas, on the one hand, will need to beat TCU twice on Monday in order to capture the Fayetteville Regional crown. A win from TCU in either game immediately gives the Horned Frogs the advantage and eliminates the Razorbacks.
LSU, on the other, will have two chances to defeat Oregon State on Monday to capture the Baton Rouge Regional. If Oregon State were to win both games against LSU on Monday, the Tigers would then be eliminated from the tournament.
