The No. 2 seed Arkansas baseball team is set to host its second NCAA Super Regional, welcoming No. 1 seed Missouri State for a Friday-Sunday series with the winner advancing to the College World Series. The NCAA will announce game times and television networks. The Fayetteville Super Regional is fast approaching a sellout. As of Monday evening, the Razorback Ticket Center was processing 10,000 plus ticket orders from Razorback Foundation members and season ticket holders.
Arkansas is in the midst of its 28th NCAA Tournament run in program history, including the 14th consecutive. The Razorbacks have won two Super Regionals in the last seven years and six since the NCAA went to the format in 1999. In the storied history of Arkansas baseball, the Razorbacks have appeared in seven College World Series, advancing to Omaha in 1979, 1985, 1987, 1989, 2004, 2009 and 2012. Arkansas is coming off a 3-0 performance at the Stillwater Regional, knocking off Oral Roberts, Oklahoma State and St. Johns to sweep its fourth regional in the last eight years. The Razorbacks are 49-21 all-time against Missouri State, including winning 10 of the last 11 meetings in the series.
