Stetson is in the college baseball NCAA Tournament. See who the Hatters will match up with.

The first stretch of road in the NCAA Tournament will be a familiar one for Stetson.

The Hatters clinched a spot in the Big Dance after winning the ASUN Championship on Sunday via a win over Kennesaw State. Monday, the Hatters discovered their destination.

Stetson will take on host Florida State — the tournament's No. 8 overall seed vs. the top seed — in the Tallahassee Region at noon Friday. UCF and Alabama will square off on the other side of the four-team bracket at 6 p.m.. The four-team pod will follow a double-elimination format with the winner advancing to the Super Regionals.

The Hatters (40-20) should enter the bracket with confidence, having split with both the Seminoles and the Knights already this season, earning victories over both in the teams' final meetings.

"I think we're a dangerous team, man. I mean, we've got 40 wins," Stetson coach Steve Trimper said after winning the conference title on Sunday. "I don't think anybody is going to want to play the Stetson Hatters in the first round. This is not the end. This is just the beginning."

Start times for Friday's games were not available immediately after the tournament announcement. Games will be available to watch on ESPN+.

The survivor of the Tallahassee Region will meet the winner of the Norman Region in a best-of-three series in Super Regionals. Oklahoma, Duke, UConn and Oral Roberts comprise the Norman field.
