ESPN’s coverage of the 2017 NCAA Division I Baseball Championship continues this weekend with the Super Regionals. Beginning Friday, June 9, through Monday, June 12, the 16 teams who advanced from last week’s Regionals will face off from eight sites across the country. ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU will provide exclusive coverage of every matchup of the Super Regionals. All games will also be available to stream via the ESPN app. The winners will advance to play in the College World Series (June 17-27/28) in Omaha, Neb.

Five top-seeded teams remain in No. 1 Oregon State, No. 3 Florida, No. 4 LSU, No. 6 TCU and No. 7 Louisville. The SEC currently has six teams in the championship, while the ACC has three.
