The Wildcats will also know whether they will be given one of the eight national seeds, which would guarantee a super regional at Cliff Hagan Stadium if United Kingdom wins the regional tournament.

The University of Arkansas, Fayetteville campus was announced as one of 16 regional host sites Sunday shortly after the Razorbacks' 4-2 loss to LSU in the SEC Tournament championship game. The other three teams that will make their way to Lexington will be announced at noon Monday during the NCAA Baseball Championship Selection Show on ESPN2. The Tigers open the NCAA Tournament on Friday, the 15th time they will host a regional at Doug Kingsmore Stadium. That possibility all but became nonexistent over the regular season's final two weekends as MSU lost two out of three games at Georgia before being swept at home by LSU. There are eight national seeds, who are guaranteed to host not only this week but also in the Super Regionals if they advance. The ACC led all conferences with five host sites: North Carolina, Louisville, Florida State, Clemson and Wake Forest. Stanford (40-14) and Southern Mississippi (48-13) are the other teams most heavily discussed with United Kingdom getting one of the last national seeds. Kentucky (39-20) earned a regional for the second time, and first since 2006, after winning 19 SEC games, second-most in program history, and playing for a conference title on the final day of the regular season. They have hosted Regionals in seven of the last nine seasons.

Oregon State is hosting a public watch party at the Reser Stadium Club in Corvallis at 8:30 a.m.

Each regional will feature four teams in a double-elimination format.
