College World Series Bracketology


The College Baseball Selection show will be held on May 28th, 2018 and we are here to attempt to project where each team will land. The College World Series Regionals consist of 64 teams of which 31 are automatic qualifiers and 33 are at-large bids. In 2018, for the first time, the selection committee will seed the top sixteen teams rather than the eight that were seeded in the past. Each of those sixteen teams will host a Regional at their field.

Below is a list of our bubble teams and projected field. As we get closer to selection day, we will fine tune these projections. Early in the season, these projections are mostly based on analytics.

* denotes that the team gets an automatic bid due to winning their conference.

Our baseball bracketology attempts to take into account everything that the selection committee would look at. This includes record, conference record, conference championships, strength of schedules, big wins, RPI and more. The top sixteen seeds are locked in, while the remaining teams are put into the Regional by location.
