Tennessee baseball enters the home stretch of the regular season as the No. 1 team in the country according to every single major college baseball ranking.

But where do they stand in the latest D1Baseball NCAA Tournament Projected Field? The Vols are the No. 3 overall seed according to the latest 64-team field.

In the Knoxville Regional, Tennessee is hosting two-seed Connecticut, three-seed Virginia Tech and four-seed Niagara. The Huskies are the premier baseball program in the Northeast and are currently 27-20 (12-3 Big East) while Virginia Tech is 31-15 (13-11 ACC) in the second best conference in the country.

As a national seed, Tennessee matches up with the Athens Regional as a potential Super Regional opponent for the Vols. The Athens Regional includes four teams that would make a fascinating matchup for the Vols with a berth in the College World Series on the line.

No. 14 overall seed Georgia would be a SEC matchup, former Tennessee star Chase Burns pitches for two-seed Wake Forest, three-seed Southern Miss would signify a rematch of last season’s Hattiesburg Super Regional and four-seed Austin Peay would be an instate battle.

Tennessee is one of 10 SEC teams that’s currently projected to make the NCAA Tournament according to D1Baseball.

With two weeks left in the regular season, the Vols have locked up hosting a regional while they’re sitting in a fantastic position to earn a top eight-seed and to host a super regional if they can win their own regional.

Tennessee is looking to take another step forward as it heads to Nashville this weekend to take on rival Vanderbilt in a three-game series at Hawkins Field.
