The road to Omaha returns this weekend as the 2018 NCAA Division I Baseball Championship Presented by Capital One continues with exclusive coverage of Super Regionals on ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU beginning Friday, June 8. The 16 teams who advanced from last week’s Regionals will face off from eight sites across the country, with the winner of each Super Regional advancing to play in the College World Series (June 16-26/27) in Omaha, Neb.

ESPN will have a full slate of Super Regionals studio coverage with Allison Williams, Matt Schick and John Brickley recapping the action throughout the weekend from the ESPN studio in Bristol. Peter Burns and David Dellucci will be on the SEC Now set in Charlotte breaking down highlights of the six Southeastern Conference teams competing in Super Regionals, and Longhorn Network will be live with Alex Loeb and Greg Swindell for Texas GameDay, airing 30 minutes before Saturday’s Super Regional matchup in Austin.

All of this weekend’s games are available to stream via the ESPN App on connected devices. ESPN is the home of 24 NCAA Championships, with the College World Series closing out the 2017-18 college sports season.
