NCAA baseball tournament 2021: Full regionals bracket, TV schedule for Road to College World Series

For the first time in two years, the best college baseball teams in the country will face off in postseason action to determine a men’s College World Series winner. 

The conference championships have wrapped up across the nation and the top 16 teams have been selected by the NCAA. Now, those 64 teams will compete in the regionals hoping for a chance to move on to the super regionals and a spot in Omaha for the first time in two years. 

Take a look at all the information you need to start watching the college baseball postseason.

NCAA baseball tournament bracket 2021

The NCAA released the full baseball tournament bracket on Monday with the 16 host sites and the rankings of the top teams in the nation. 

Arkansas leads the way as the bracket’s No. 1 seed after going 46-10 to this point and winning the SEC baseball tournament. 

Teams will now head to the regionals, where they will battle it out for the chance to move on to the super regionals. The top seed in each bracket will face the No. 4 seed with the middle two teams playing off against one another. A team will need to total three wins in a regional and everyone faces double-elimination. 

From there, the winner of the Fayetteville regional will take on the No. 16 regional, the No. 2 regional winner will take on the No. 15 regional winner and so on in best-of-three series to move on to the men’s College World Series quarterfinals.
