super regionals are history

If you were looking for a College World Series field dominated by SEC and ACC teams, you’ve come to the wrong parity party, pal. Only one team from each of those conferences, which combined to place 17 teams in the field of 64, survived super regional weekend.

The 2016 super regionals will go down as the most exciting and improbable ever. Upsets were rampant, as unheralded upstarts went into the wildest of dens and came away with shocking results. Only three home teams emerged unscathed from the super regional round, and all three of their series went the full three games.

Florida, Miami and Texas Tech move on from the eight national seeds, while Louisville, South Carolina, LSU, Texas A&M and Mississippi State were all eliminated on their home field, most of them in unbelievable walk-off fashion.
