The second edition of my 2016 NCAA Baseball Regionals projections while looking similar to last week’s compilation, has vast differences, thanks to a volatile week in college baseball.

While Mississippi State’s series victory over Florida didn’t move the Gators out of the number one overall seed, the Bulldogs did grab a projected hosting gig in Starkville. Other, new, projected hosts are North Carolina State and Texas Tech as, both, the Wolfpack and Red Raiders have played strong ball as of late. Moving out of host spots are North Carolina, Coastal Carolina and TCU. Six of last week’s projected national seeds return, but North Carolina (6) and Clemson (8) are shuffled out in favor of UC Santa Barbara and Texas A&M.

With a combined 17 teams in the field, in this projection, the SEC and ACC have representatives in 14 of the 16 regional groups, with the only exceptions being in Los Angeles and Lubbock for the annual tournament, which begins on Friday, June 3 and culminates with the College World Series beginning on Saturday, June 18 at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha.
