This marks the third time in four years and in the Tony Vitello era that Tennessee will host a Regional. If the Vols win the Regional, it will also be the third time Tennessee will host a Super Regional in the past four years and in the Vitello era.

The Vols enter the NCAA Tournament coming off an impressive week in Hoover in which they won the SEC Tournament. After losing their first game in the tournament to Vanderbilt on Wednesday, Tennessee reeled off four straight victories to claim its second SEC Tournament championship in three years.

Tennessee capped off the week with a 4-3 win over LSU on Sunday in front of a packed crowd in Hoover Met Stadium.

In D1Baseball.com’s latest Field of 64 projections on Sunday morning, Tennessee will host 2-seed UC Irvine, 3-seed Georgia Tech and 4-seed Jackson State in its Regional. Georgia Tech was the 3-seed in Tennessee’s regional in 2022 as well.

Mississippi State was the projected No. 16 overall seed in D1 Baseball’s latest projection. Therefore, if the Vols and Bulldogs were to win their Regionals, Tennessee would host Mississippi State in the Super Regional.
