NCAA Baseball Projections: Ole Miss makes a move, two new mid-majors on track to host

Ole Miss and Oregon State are among the college baseball teams making a slight jump in seeding this week in the NCAA tournament projections.

Oregon State (38-8-1) took two-of-three from Stanford while Ole Miss (39-13) is coming off an impressive sweep of Auburn. Oregon State moves up one spot in seeding to No. 3 and the Rebels jump two spots to No. 6.

We also have significant changes among the mid-major programs that are projected to host regionals. UConn moves out while Stetson and Coastal Carolina move in.

There's no way that Stetson (40-11) gets left out as a regional host at this point thanks to a No. 7 RPI ranking. Stetson's 2,500-seat facility is a little on the small side, but that shouldn't prevent the Hatters from hosting in Deland, Florida.

Coastal Carolina (36-16) gets the final regional site as a No. 16 seed thanks to an impressive week that included a sweep of Little Rock and a win over North Carolina. The Chanticleers check in at No. 18 in RPI.
