Who’s going to the College World Series? Predicting every NCAA baseball super regional winner

There are 16 teams remaining in the NCAA Baseball Championship. They will play best-of-three super regionals through the weekend to determine which will advance to the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska.

The USA TODAY Sports Network is predicting which team will win each super regional to advance, and which will win the national championship. Here are the picks:

Fayetteville Super Regional

North Carolina State (33-17) at No. 1 Arkansas (49-11)

Aria Gerson, The Tennessean: Arkansas. The Razorbacks had their struggles in regionals but will get back on track with a favorable matchup.

Glenn Guilbeau, The Daily Advertiser: Arkansas. In a league that produced six super regional teams, Arkansas is the best and will sweep the Wolfpack.

Tyler Horka, The Clarion Ledger: Arkansas. How can you pick against lights-out pitcher Kevin Kopps and a batting order that always seems to back him up?

Nick Suss, The Clarion Ledger: Arkansas. The Razorbacks offense didn’t produce like itself in regionals, but don’t be surprised if it bounces back in a big way against an NC State team with a 4.91 team ERA.

Mike Wilson, Knoxville News Sentinel: Arkansas. The Razorbacks didn’t dominate their regional. But they have Kevin Kopps, who is a cheat code.

Nashville Super Regional

No. 13 East Carolina (44-15) at No. 4 Vanderbilt (43-15)

Aria Gerson, The Tennessean: Vanderbilt. The Pirates have never made it out of super regionals, and this is a tough matchup with one of the few teams that can match (and better) All-American pitcher Gavin Williams.

Glenn Guilbeau, The Daily Advertiser: Vanderbilt. Kumar Rocker, Jack Leiter, Omaha, Nebraska.

Tyler Horka, The Clarion Ledger: East Carolina. Pirates junior pitcher Gavin Williams will go toe to toe with Vanderbilt’s stellar pitching, and ECU will advance to the College World Series for the first time.

Nick Suss, The Clarion Ledger: Vanderbilt. No need to overthink this one. Jack Leiter and Kumar Rocker haven’t lost in the same weekend this year. That won’t change.

Mike Wilson, Knoxville News Sentinel: Vanderbilt. The Commodores are built to win two out of three with Kumar Rocker and Jack Leiter. Tim Corbin is taking another team to Omaha.

Lubbock Super Regional

No. 9 Stanford (36-15) at No. 8 Texas Tech (45-15)

Aria Gerson, The Tennessean: Texas Tech. The Red Raiders always seem to show up in the postseason, and this year will be no different.

Glenn Guilbeau, The Daily Advertiser: Texas Tech. The Red Raiders win three one-run games and reach Omaha for a third straight time.

Tyler Horka, The Clarion Ledger: Texas Tech. Make it three straight College World Series appearance for Tim Tadlock and the Red Raiders.

Nick Suss, The Clarion Ledger: Texas Tech. Stanford has played only three games off the Pacific Coast this year, and those games were in Phoenix. Texas Tech takes advantage of the Cardinal in their first real road trip.

Mike Wilson, Knoxville News Sentinel: Texas Tech. The Red Raiders had no trouble in the regional round. They won’t in the supers either.

Tucson Super Regional

No. 12 Ole Miss (44-20) at No. 5 Arizona (43-15)

Aria Gerson, The Tennessean: Ole Miss. What better way to continue the legend of Tim Elko and his one ACL?

Glenn Guilbeau, The Daily Advertiser: Ole Miss. Coach Mike Bianco brings the best Skip Bertman imitation in America to Omaha once again.

Tyler Horka, The Clarion Ledger: Arizona. Ole Miss’ pitching in the postseason has been a pleasant surprise for the Rebels, but Arizona’s No. 2 run-producing offense in the country will be too much for Ole Miss to handle.

Nick Suss, The Clarion Ledger: Arizona. No Power Five team scores more runs or has more hits than Arizona. That offense is too much for Ole Miss’ thin pitching to take in the desert.

Mike Wilson, Knoxville News Sentinel: Arizona. The Wildcats smash the ball too well for Ole Miss to keep up.

Austin Super Regional

South Florida (31-28) at No. 2 Texas (45-15)

Aria Gerson, The Tennessean: Texas. South Florida is a great story, but the Longhorns will be too much for the Bulls to handle.

Glenn Guilbeau, The Daily Advertiser: Texas. The Longhorns return to Omaha for the first time since 2018.

Tyler Horka, The Clarion Ledger: Texas. Pitching wins in June, and the Longhorns have the nation’s No. 1 team ERA at 2.87. Texas reaches the College World Series for an all-time NCAA record 37th time.

Nick Suss, The Clarion Ledger: Texas. No team pitches it as well as Texas. That’s enough to lift the Longhorns past the tournament’s Cinderella.

Mike Wilson, Knoxville News Sentinel: Texas. It’s the super regional pairing no one saw coming. But the outcome is clear in this one.

Knoxville Super Regional

LSU (38-23) at No. 3 Tennessee (48-16)

Aria Gerson, The Tennessean: Tennessee. The Volunteers keep rolling through their best season in years.

Glenn Guilbeau, The Daily Advertiser: Tennessee. Landon Marceaux beats the Vols in game two on Sunday to even the series, but coach Paul Mainieri’s magic disappears on a Luc Lipcius walk-off home run on Monday night.

Tyler Horka, The Clarion Ledger: Tennessee. Something tells me Volunteer fans will be even more “nasty” than LSU coach Paul Mainieri remembers them being in Tennessee’s sweep of the Tigers in March.

Nick Suss, The Clarion Ledger: Tennessee. Don’t be surprised if both of these teams average five home runs a game, but Tennessee’s pitching is a little deeper than LSU’s and that’ll carry the Vols to Omaha.

Mike Wilson, Knoxville News Sentinel: Tennessee. Paul Mainieri is bringing his team into a hostile environment to face a team with a lot of moxie. The Vols have seemed destined for Omaha. That hasn’t changed.

Starkville Super Regional

No. 10 Notre Dame (33-11) at No. 7 Mississippi State (43-15)

Aria Gerson, The Tennessean: Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish felt snubbed from a national seed, and Niko Kavadas and Co. will show the Bulldogs why.

Glenn Guilbeau, The Daily Advertiser: Mississippi State. The Fighting Irish can’t handle Mississippi State pitching and wilt in the heat of Starkville.

Tyler Horka, The Clarion Ledger: Mississippi State. Strong starts from Bulldog pitchers Christian MacLeod and Will Bednar will stymie a red-hot Notre Dame batting order and help punch MSU’s third straight ticket to the College World Series.

Nick Suss, The Clarion Ledger: Notre Dame. There’s something to be said about playing angry. Notre Dame did so in its regional, outscoring opponents 50-5, and carries that attitude to Starkville.

Mike Wilson, Knoxville News-Sentinel: Notre Dame. Notre Dame was the most dominant team in the regional round. Mississippi State might be running into a buzzsaw.

Columbia (S.C.) Super Regional

Dallas Baptist (40-16) vs. Virginia (32-24)

Aria Gerson, The Tennessean: Virginia. The Cavaliers will ride the momentum of their walk-off, regional-winning home run to advance to super regionals.

Glenn Guilbeau, The Daily Advertiser: Virginia. Dallas Baptist wins the opener and leads in game three … until the ninth.

Tyler Horka, The Clarion Ledger: Dallas Baptist. First super regional appearance ever? Might as well make it to the College World Series for the first time ever in the same season, too.

Nick Suss, The Clarion Ledger: Virginia. These Cavs didn’t come out of nowhere. They won their last four ACC series and crushed Notre Dame 14-1 in the ACC Tournament. Brian O’Connor gets his fifth College World Series berth.

Mike Wilson, Knoxville News Sentinel: Dallas Baptist. A road super regional for both teams? Let’s get weird.

College World Series winner

Aria Gerson, The Tennessean: Texas. The nation’s best pitching staff by ERA and the winningest program in college baseball history earns its first championship since 2005.

Glenn Guilbeau, The Daily Advertiser: Arkansas. Coach Dave Van Horn wins his elusive national title on his ninth Omaha trip – two with Nebraska and seven with the Razorbacks, including a runner-up finish in 2018.

Tyler Horka, The Clarion Ledger: Arkansas. The Razorbacks have been the best team in college baseball for too long this season not to cap it off with their first national title in program history.

Nick Suss, The Clarion Ledger: Arkansas. There’s still no reason to pick against the Hogs. They’ve got winning records against seven of the other 15 teams left. Dave Van Horn’s squad hasn’t hiccuped yet, and it’s silly to bet it will.

Mike Wilson, Knoxville News Sentinel: Arkansas. The Razorbacks have been the best team in college baseball this season. It hasn’t changed.

Jill Ellis to lead NWSL expansion team in San Diego

Former U.S. national team coach Jill Ellis will serve as president of a National Women’s Soccer League expansion team in San Diego.

The new team, owned by investor Ron Burkle, will be launched next season.

“We aim to become a significant team globally, led by influential women, with the ability to attract the best talent throughout the world,” Ellis said in a statement Tuesday. “I am eager to begin this project and look forward to leading this club as we build towards the future.”

Ellis quit as coach of the national team in 2019 after the United States won its second straight World Cup. She was hired as coach in 2014 and led it the U.S. to eight tournament titles. Over the course of her tenure, the United States lost just seven matches.

Burkle is a co-owner of the NHL’s Pittsburgh Penguins. In February, he backed out of plans for a Major League expansion team in Sacramento, California, that was scheduled to start play in 2023.

Burkle’s business associate Matt Alvarez will lead the NWSL team. Alvarez had been announced as part of the withdrawn Sacramento MLS ownership group.

“We believe in Jill and will provide the necessary investment to build a club that all of San Diego will be proud to support,” Burkle said in a statement. “Jill’s expertise and history within the sport is unrivalled and we are incredibly excited to continue to work with Commissioner (Lisa) Baird to bring a world-class team to San Diego as we continue to grow the sport and women’s soccer.”

Baird announced earlier this year that the NWSL was adding a Sacramento team, but when the MLS expansion fell through, its future was uncertain until Tuesday’s announcement.

The addition of San Diego will bring the league to 12 teams. Angel City in Los Angeles is also set to start play in 2022.

Amateur Megha Ganne holds share of lead at US Women’s Open

High school junior Megha Ganne shot a 4-under 67 on Thursday to become the first amateur in 15 years to have a share of the lead after any round at the U.S. Women’s Open.

The 17-year-old from New Jersey made back-to-back birdies on the back nine to take sole possession of the lead before making bogey on the 18th hole to end the day in a tie with Mel Reid on the Lake Course at the Olympic Club.

Ganne became the first amateur to lead after a round at the women’s Open since Jane Park did it after one round at Newport Country Club in 2006.

“I think just my ability to play smart and not take any unnecessary risks, and I didn’t panic when I got into the rough a couple of times out there,” Ganne said of the key to her success. “Because there are definitely holes I wasn’t keeping in the fairway, and it’s easy to panic out there, and I didn’t do that.”

Ganne needed a playoff last month to qualify for her second career U.S. Open but felt much more comfortable once she got here than she did two years ago when she missed the cut.

“I think the first time is nerve-racking for anybody and meeting your idols and being on the stage for the first time,” she said. “But the second time around, even the practice rounds, I wasn’t as nervous. I felt like I could come here and just play my game instead of soaking that all in.”

She did just that up the road from Stanford where she plans to go to college after graduating high school next year. She birdied three of the first eight holes and made three more on the back nine to overcome a pair of bogeys.

She made one of her few mistakes on 18 when she hit her approach shot into a greenside bunker.

The notoriously tough Lake Course played a little easier than usual after the rough was trimmed a bit before the round. Fifteen players shot under par with Canada’s Brooke Henderson, and Americans Angel Yin and Megan Khang one shot back. Henderson three-putted from less than 20 feet on the 18th hole to fall out of a share of the lead.

Lexi Thompson, Yuka Saso and Shanshan Feng were two shots back.

Other notable players include defending champion A Lim Kim of South Korea, who struggled at 6 over, and 2014 champion Michelle Wie West, who shot 74.

This marked the first time the women came to the Lake Course overlooking the Pacific Ocean for a major. But this venue has a rich history for the men, hosting five U.S. Opens and three U.S. Amateurs among other events.

The course that played at 6,361 yards Thursday has traditionally played as one of the tougher ones despite having no water hazards and only one fairway bunker. Only four men broke par at the five U.S. Opens here, including none the past two times with Lee Janzen winning at even par in 1998 and Webb Simpson a 1 over in 2012.

Reid set the pace in the morning. The Englishwoman started at the ninth hole and hit her first two approach shots within 10 feet for birdies on the par 4s. She added birdies on Nos. 15 and 16, another on her second-to-last hole and had only one bogey all round.

“I didn’t think that score was out there honestly,” she said. “I had a pretty good game plan. It’s probably the best I’ve had for a tournament. We had a game plan and stuck to it. If you’re in trouble, just get it out, make bogey. I think the key here is to not take many risks the first two, three days, and I didn’t do that.”

Reid, who won her first LPGA Tour title last October to go with her six career wins on the European Tour, has had little career success at the U.S. Women’s Open. She missed the cut four of her previous five times at this tournament and finished tied for 50th in her other appearance in 2012.

Reid said she was helped by a couple of long conversations with two-time men’s U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka that she carried over into the round.

“He gave me a few things that he follows by in a major, so obviously appreciate his help,” she said. “What he told me was, I thought, invaluable honestly, and it made me have a little bit different approach. That’s why I feel like I prepared the best.”

While Reid used a fast start to get to the top of the leaderboard, Yin finished strong by making eagle on the par-5 17th and birdie on the par-4 18th to get within one shot of the lead. The American’s 60-foot putt on 17 helped overcome back-to-back bogeys on the front nine.

One of the featured groups in the morning featured sisters Jessica and Nellie Korda, the daughters of 1998 Australian Open men’s tennis champion Petr Korda. Their parents took advantage of the grouping and got to watch both daughters at once.

Jessica birdied three of her first five holes before finishing at 72, while Nellie shot 78.

Morikawa leads at Muirfield Village on day suspended by rain

Collin Morikawa had another favorable result at Muirfield Village on a golf course that looked and sounded a lot different from when he won last year.

Morikawa felt good vibes from an old putter and posted a 6-under 66 in rain-softened conditions Thursday morning at the Memorial. That gave him a one-shot lead over Adam Long among early starters, with Xander Schauffele in the group two shots behind.

The weather was bad enough that the first round was suspended twice, with only half the field finishing the round.

For Morikawa, the name of the tournament is different, too. He won a playoff at Muirfield Village last year in the Workday Charity Open, a one-time event to replace the pandemic-canceled John Deere Classic.

But there’s a comfort level at the course Jack Nicklaus built, no matter how much it has been renovated and reshaped. And it was noisy Thursday as the tournament has let at least 25% capacity of fans on the course.

Jon Rahm is the defending champion at the Memorial and faced a far stronger test. Nicklaus knew he was going to be redoing the fairways and greens, so he let them go for the Memorial and conditions were as tough as a U.S. Open.

Rahm did OK in the soft conditions with a 69, tied with British Open champion Shane Lowry, Justin Thomas and Rickie Fowler, who needs a runner-up finish to move into the top 60 in the world ranking and avoid U.S. Open qualifying on Monday.

Jordan Spieth, Bryson DeChambeau and Rory McIlroy didn’t make it past a couple of holes before the weather stopped everything. They were to return Friday morning to finish the first round, and then right back out for the second round.

The forecast was better for the rest of the week, and darkness doesn’t set in until about 9 p.m.

What made Schauffele’s round interesting is that he used the controversial arm-lock method to putt. It’s a putter he’s only had for about a week. He’s among the best statistically putting. And he things the putting style should be banned.

It’s the method used by DeChambeau, Matt Kuchar and Will Zalatoris, among others. Most players believe it is no different from anchoring the long putter against the sternum, a style the R&A and USGA outlawed.

But if the rules makers are allowing it, Schauffele figures he might as well do the same.

Kuchar, meanwhile, withdrew when he was 9 over after 14 holes for what the PGA Tour described as a left forearm injury.

USFL relaunching next year, four decades after its birth

The USFL is relaunching in 2022, four decades after the spring football league’s short-lived run that featured such stars as Reggie White, Herschel Walker, Steve Young, Jim Kelly and future president Donald Trump.

The new USFL announced Thursday it will play next spring with a minimum of eight teams “and deliver high-quality, innovative professional football to fans.”

Although those teams, along with the cities, head coaches and schedules won’t be announced until later, the league said it retains the rights to “key original team names.”

The USFL also is using the same red, white and blue stars-and-stripes logo it did from 1983-85.

Fox Sports, which has a minority equity stake in the company that owns the new USFL, will serve as the league’s official broadcast partner.

“I’m extremely passionate about football and the opportunity to work with Fox Sports and to bring back the USFL in 2022 was an endeavor worth pursuing,” said Brian Woods, co-founder of the new USFL and founder and CEO of The Spring League.

“We look forward to providing players a new opportunity to compete in a professional football league and giving fans everywhere the best football viewing product possible during what is typically a period devoid of professional football.”

Fox CEO and executive producer Eric Shanks called the USFL’s relaunch “a landmark day for football fans and Fox Sports.”

“Football is in our DNA and the return of this innovative and iconic league is a fantastic addition to our robust slate of football programming,” Shanks said.

The USFL was launched in 1983, but crumbled after three seasons because of out-of-control spending and an ill-conceived push led by Trump, owner of the New Jersey Generals, to compete directly against the NFL with a fall season.

Launched originally to serve as more of a complement to the NFL than a direct competitor, the USFL helped change professional football in its short lifespan.

The USFL featured rules innovations, helped usher in underclassmen being drafted by the NFL and pushed the league to pay bigger salaries and create real free agency.

In the end, the USFL’s most enduring legacy was the $3 judgment it “won” in an antitrust suit against the NFL, a ruling that finished off the league in 1986 before it carried out a Trump-backed move from spring to fall.
