- The Big 12 Conference tournament splits the field into two pools. Each pool plays a round-robin tournament. The team with the best record in each pool will move on to the Championship Game on Sunday. In the event of tied records, the tie-breaker is based on head-to-head results from the tournament.
- The 10-run rule is in effect for all games except the Championship Game.
- Game 11 was called at the end of the 7th inning (10-run rule).
Seedings: #1 - Texas (44-15) #2 - UC-Irvine (40-15-1) #3 - Wake Forest (33-27) #4 - Brown (27-19) Friday, June 1 Game 1: Wake Forest 0 Game 2: Brown 2 1 pm UC-Irvine 13 7 pm Texas 8 [post] Saturday, June 2 Game 3: Wake Forest 4 Game 4: UC-Irvine 3 noon Brown 2 (x) 6 pm Texas 1 [post] Sunday, June 3 Game 5: Texas 7 Game 6: Texas 6 noon Wake Forest 4* (x) 6 pm UC-Irvine 9 (Austin Regional Champ) [post] [post] Monday, June 4 Game 7: (not played)
Austin Regional Notes:
- UC-Irvine received an at-large bid. They ended the season as the #3 team in the Big West with a conference record of 15-6 and RPI ranking of 30 going into the NCAA tournament. They're one of the toughest #2 teams in the tournament.
- Wake Forest ended the season in 4th place in the Atlantic Division of the ACC with a conference record of 14-16. They were the #8 seed in the ACC Championship Tournament. Like the Big 12, the ACC plays two round-robin brackets, the winners of which play a championship game. Wake Forest lost to FSU, beat Clemson, and beat Miami in the round-robin part of the tournament to advance to the Championship game. North Carolina then beat Wake Forest 3-2 in the Championship game. Wake Forest goes into the NCAA tournament at #22 on the RPI list and with an at-large bid.
- Brown beat Penn twice to win the Ivy League Championship to get an automatic trip to the field of 64. Oddly enough, the tournament was played on May 5th and the Brown Bears went on to play 4 more games after the conference tournament. Odd, doncha think?
- Texas has never played UC-Irvine or Brown. Texas did beat Wake Forest twice in 1949 to win the College World Series that year.
- Game 5 went 12 innings.
- Game 6 was suspended in the 7th due to thunderstorms and was resumed at 1 pm on Monday.
- Game 7 is only played if the winner of Game 5 wins Game 6.
- The winner of the Austin Regional will play the winner of the Wichita Regional: #1 Wichita State, #2 Arizona, #3 Oral Roberts, and #4 New Orleans.
Field of 64 Notes:
- The top 8 National seeds (in order) are: Vanderbilt, Rice, North Carolina, Texas, Arizona State, Florida State, Arkansas, and San Diego.
- Other Big 12 teams in the tournament:
- Missouri (hosting Miami, Louisville, and Kent State)
- Texas A&M (hosting Louisiana-Lafayette, Ohio State, and Le Moyne)
- Baylor (#3 seed at Rice with TCU and Prairie View)
- Nebraska (#3 seed at Arizona State, with UC-Riverside and Monmouth)
- Oklahoma State (#3 seed at Arkansas, with Creighton and Albany)
- I'm still surprised that OU did not get an at-large bid.
- Two Big 12 teams advanced to the Super Regional round: Texas A&M and Oklahoma State
- Only three of the Top 8 National Seeds advanced to the Super Regional round: (2) Rice, (3) North Carolina, and (5) Arizona State
