Exclusive NCAA Division I Baseball Championship Super Regionals Begin Friday

Millions Watch ESPN's Regional Coverage

ESPN's exclusive coverage of the NCAA Division I Baseball Championship - featuring every matchup for the second consecutive season - will continue with the Super Regionals Friday, June 6, to Monday, June 9.

ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU will combine to televise every game of the eight best-of-three Super Regionals (up to 24 games). Each Super Regional winner will advance to the College World Series. For the 12th straight year, ESPN and ESPN2 will combine to televise the entire College World Series (up to 17 games), including the best-of-three College World Series Finals.

Highlights of the Regional round action:

· The state of Texas, which only had four teams in the entire 64-team field last season, will be represented by four teams in the Super Regionals. This will be the fourth time a state has had four teams among the final 16 (California in 2008 and 2000, and Texas in 2003). At least two of those squads reached the College World Series in the three previous instances.

· Five teams seeded third or lower won their Regional, a first since the field expanded to 64 teams.

· College of Charleston is only the fourth four seed to reach the Super Regionals. Stony Brook in 2012 and Fresno State in 2008 advanced to the College World Series with Fresno State winning the national title. Missouri in 2006 lost in the Super Regionals.

· Three seeds Pepperdine, Stanford, UC Irvine and Kennesaw State advanced. Kennesaw State is the first school since Kansas in 1993 to win a Regional in its first NCAA Tournament appearance.

· Nine of the 16 No. 1 seeds were eliminated in the Regionals, including five of the eight national seeds. Both are tied for the most such regional upsets in the 16 years since the field expanded to 64 teams.

· Four of the five Big 12 Conference teams, and both of the American Athletic Conference squads, advanced to the Super Regionals.
