OXFORD, Miss. -- Ole Miss went to Texas and beat TCU in the season opener. The Rebels will need to do it again if their postseason is to get off to a good start.

Ole Miss (35-24) was selected as the No. 3 seed in the College Station (Texas) Regional and will face No. 2 seed TCU on the opening day. No. 1 seed and host Texas A&M and No. 4 seed Dayton comprise the rest of the regional field, sources told RebelGrove.com on Monday.

It will likely be a rematch of the season opener with Ole Miss' Bobby Wahl facing TCU's Andrew Mitchell. The Rebels won that one, 7-4, and TCU won on Sunday, 5-3, to split the series. The Horned Frogs are 36-19 and an at-large team out of the Mountain West Conference.

Texas A&M, an at-large selection out of the Big XII, is 42-16 (30-10 at home) and rides an impressive group of starting pitchers. The Aggies are led by right-handers Michael Wacha (8-1, 2.21) and Ross Stripling (10-3, 2.90).  TCU is A&M and Ole Miss' common opponent. The Aggies won at TCU, 4-1, on April 24.

Dayton is the Atlantic-10 tournament champion. The Flyers are 31-28. Kentucky is the only common opponent between Dayton and Ole Miss. The Wildcats beat the Flyers, 19-6, in a midweek game.

The host site for the College Station Regional is Blue Bell Park, which was recently renovated prior to the 2012 season. Capacity is approximately 6,000.
