Baseball America: First bubble team on the outside of hosting a regional. Here is the explanation:
Arkansas remains in the hosting discussion despite its No. 53 RPI, because it has a strong SEC record (13-7), and it still has a chance to boost its RPI into the top 32 by season’s end (though not the top 16). Just to get into the top 32, Arkansas will have to win eight of its last 10 games, although remaining series at Auburn and home against Tennessee are very winnable. The SEC tournament could provide Arkansas with a further RPI boost, especially if it makes a deep run. So the Hogs have work to do, but if the SEC gets a fifth host, we still think it will be Arkansas.
Southeastern Baseball: Razorbacks are #2 seed in the Louisville regional along with St. Louis and Lamar.
Chasing Omaha: #2 seed in the Raleigh regional (NC State) along with Michigan State and St. Louis.
College Baseball Daily: Hosting regional in Fayetteville with Troy, Pittsburgh, and Missouri State
