Big 12 Conference Baseball
Baylor Bears Kansas Jayhawks Kansas State Wildcats Oklahoma Sooners Oklahoma State Cowboys TCU Horned Frogs Texas Longhorns Texas Tech Red Raiders West Virginia Mountaineers
While Big 12 teams such as Baylor, Oklahoma State, and Missouri have seen the College World Series, the Texas Longhorns are the Big 12's constant participant. The Longhorns have competed in 12 CWS since 1947 and have walked off the field as champions 50% of the time. Most recently the Horns took home the title in 2003 and 2005. Big 12 baseball will continue in favor of the Texas Longhorns but has potential to pit multiple teams in to contention.
SEC Conference Baseball
Alabama Crimson Tide Arkansas Razorbacks Auburn Tigers Florida Gators Georgia Bulldogs Kentucky Wildcats LSU Tigers Missouri Tigers Mississippi State Bulldogs Ole Miss Rebels South Carolina Gamecocks Tennessee Volunteers Texas A&M Aggies Vanderbilt Commodores
When it comes to College Baseball the SEC is well represented throughout the season. The SEC has seen its teams compete in six of the last ten World Series, three of which an SEC team came away as champions. South Carolina saw back to back wins in 2010 and 2011 and LSU took the title prior to the Gamecocks in 2009. With the SEC becoming more and more attractive to collegiate athletes expect to see the conference in CWS contention year after year.
ACC Conference Baseball
Boston College Eagles Clemson Tigers Duke Blue Devils Florida State Seminoles Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Maryland Terrapins Miami Hurricanes North Carolina Tar Heels North Carolina State Wolfpack Virgina Cavaliers Virginia Tech Hokies Wake Forest Demon Deacons
The ACC holds some of the biggest names in college sports like "The U," Clemson, Florida State, Duke, Virginia Tech, and North Carolina. Though the teams represent the ACC extremely well in alot of sports, the ACC spotlight in baseball is only shared by the Hurricanes, and more recently, the Tar Heels. Miami had a heavy run in the CWS from the '70s up into the early 2000's when North Carolina grabbed the stage for back to back appearances in 2006 and 2007. As long as the ACC continues to produce some of the NCAA's top prospects you can always count on the Atlantic Coast to be in contention.
