The NCAA baseball tournament starts on Friday with regional action across 16 host sites before culminating with two games in a three-game championship series at Charles Schwab Field in Omaha, Nebraska, for a chance at a national championship.

While some of the mystery has been revealed — the top 16 seeds were announced on Sunday — there still remains the revealing and seeding of the remaining 75% of the tournament field.

Tennessee baseball is widely projected to be the No. 1 overall seed in the tournament after winning the SEC regular season championship and subsequently winning the SEC Tournament on Sunday. Five of the 16 hosting teams come from the SEC, with a conference record-breaking 11 projected to make the field, per projections from D1 Baseball.

Last season, LSU knocked off SEC rival Florida 2-1 in the best-of-three-game series with a record-setting offensive performance. The Tigers and Gators were not named regional hosts after playing on the biggest stage for college baseball a year ago.
