2011 College Baseball Tournament Bracketology: New Mexico Could Head To UCLA Regional

We're just a few hours away from learning the field of 64 for the 2011 NCAA Baseball Tournament, which means there's still plenty of time for some bracketology predictions. Baseball America released its projected field of 64 on Sunday night. TCU's Fort Worth regional is projected just the same as ESPN's as Oklahoma, Dallas Baptist and Oral Roberts pay a visit there.

New Mexico's destination, though, is different in Baseball America's. Here the Lobos visit the Los Angeles regional, hosted by UCLA. While there are some question if UCLA will be the No. 1 seed in their own regional, Aaron Fitt projects that to be so. And with the Lobos, 20-39, being the No. 4 seed in the regional they draw UCLA to start the double-elimination round. That will be a tough matchup for New Mexico because they will face either of UCLA's two stud pitchers: Gerrit Cole or Trevor Bauer.

However, New Mexico did upset TCU to win the Mountain West Conference tournament. Don't count them out, but don't bet the farm on them either.
