TCU, BYU Projected To Make NCAA Baseball Field Of 64

Though we are only days away from the start of the 2011 college baseball season, it is never too early to project who will make the NCAA baseball tournament. Baseball America's Aaron Fitt projects his field of 64, and it's good news for the TCU Horned Frogs. Under this scenario, TCU wins the Mountain West's automatic qualifier and is the No. 3 overall seed. They would host a regional in Forth Worth, Tx. The other teams in the regional are Arizona, Texas State and Monmouth. That would be an easy regional for the Horned Frogs to win.

The BYU Cougars are the only other team from the Mountain West who are likely to make the tournament, which, Fitt points outs, will be helped by their non-conference schedule. In this projection, the Cougars would make it as the No. 4 seed in the Eugene, Ore. regional hosted by the Oregon Ducks. The Miami Hurricanes and the Hawaii Warriors also make this a tough regional for BYU to advance any farther.

Let's see how this all shakes out over the next few months.
