Oklahoma State Named Regional Host Following Big 12 Tournament Title

The Cowboys get to close Allie P. in style.

Allie P. hasn’t seen its last game after all.

Oklahoma State was selected as one of 16 regional hosts on Sunday as college baseball heads into postseason play, and Allie P. could see even more action beyond that in a super regional if OSU is named one of the top eight seeds.

LSU leads all institutions in the field as the Tigers are hosting for the 26th time, while West Virginia is hosting for the first time. Stanford is second in the field, hosting for the 18th time, while Mississippi St. is hosting for the 14th and Oklahoma St. for the 13th time, respectively, since the NCAA went to the regional format in 1975.

The full bracket will be revealed on Monday at 11 a.m., but here’s a look at all the regional host sites.

• Athens, Georgia – Georgia (44-15)
• Atlanta, Georgia – Georgia Tech (41-17)
• Baton Rouge, Louisiana – LSU (37-24)
• Chapel Hill, North Carolina – North Carolina (42-17)
• Corvallis, Oregon – Oregon St. (36-18-1)
• Fayetteville, Arkansas – Arkansas (41-17)
• Greenville, North Carolina – East Carolina (43-15)
• Los Angeles, California – UCLA (47-8)
• Louisville, Kentucky – Louisville (43-15)
• Lubbock, Texas – Texas Tech (39-17)
• Morgantown, West Virginia – West Virginia (37-20)
• Nashville, Tennessee – Vanderbilt (49-10)
• Oxford, Mississippi – Ole Miss (37-25)
• Stanford, California – Stanford (41-11)
• Starkville, Mississippi – Mississippi St. (46-13)
• Stillwater, Oklahoma – Oklahoma St. (36-18)

OSU is one of three Big 12 teams to earn a regional bid, alongside WVU and Texas Tech. The Pokes went 36-18 on the season, finished third in the Big 12 and is coming off a scintillating run at the Big 12 Tournament in Oklahoma City.

Whether that Big 12 title will be enough to boost them into the top eight and a possible super regional host remains to be seen. Regardless, this is a fitting ending for Allie P. Reynolds Stadium following a lackluster regular season finale … a rained-out game against Baylor.

The bracket will be revealed on ESPNU on Monday, and the regional will take place from May 31-June 3 in Stillwater.
