The Big 12 ends up with zero national seeds, below is the list. I’m surprised that Oklahoma State didn't get one of these spots. Obviously Texas A&M and Nebraska played themselves out of consideration at the end of the season.
- North Carolina
- Arizona State
- Florida State
- Cal-State Fullerton
Last season five of the eight national seeds didn’t get out of their regional.
Big 12 Regional Hosts And Brackets:
Nebraska - 1

Texas A&M -1

W Kentucky - 4

Other Big 12 teams:
Mizzou goes to Coral Gables, Florida as a number two seed to face Miami. It’ll be a tough road if they’re going to get to the CWS.
Texas is a #2 seed in the Rice regional. Nice rivalry action there.
Oklahoma gets into the tourney as a #3 seed in the Arizona State regional. That’s surprising, in fact, I have no idea why Oklahoma got into this tournament.
Full bracket is available here .
Arkansas doesn’t get into their conference tournament but gets into the tournament. With all due respect to Dave Van Horn, I think that sucks. ESPN was incorrect in stating that Arkansas won their series against us, fact is the series was a split.
