South Florida in the Super Regional
A team from Florida will be at the Super Regional. And it is the one you may not have seen coming.
Talk about an underdog story.
USF ranked last in the preseason AAC Coaches Poll. Against all odds, the team won the American Athletic Conference, became the Gainesville Regional Champion and now head to the NCAA Super Regional for the first time in program history.
USF will have a chance to make more baseball history.
The Men’s College World Series will be determined after the Super Regional games and be announced on June 14. The World Series first round will be on June 19-20.
