The hopes for head coach David Pierce and No. 24 Texas baseball to host a regional this college baseball postseason were dashed after a disappointing result in the Big 12 Tournament. Texas likely needed to win the Big 12 Tournament crown if it wanted to host a regional this postseason.

For the second year in a row, Texas was bounced from the Big 12 Tournament after just two games.

Texas enters the postseason with a record of 35-22 (20-10 Big 12). The Longhorns rank No. 46 in the latest RPI as of the end of the day's games on May 23. That is the lowest RPI ranking Texas would have entering the postseason under Pierce's coaching regime since 2019.

As Pierce and the Longhorns look to return to the College World Series for the first time since 2022, where are they projected to land this postseason for regionals?

D1Baseball's latest bracketology for the college baseball postseason projects the Longhorns to land in the College Station Super Regional. Texas is projected to be the two-seed in the College Station Super Regional, hosted by the No. 4 overall seed Texas A&M Aggies.

If this projection holds, it would be the first time the Longhorns and Aggies meet in the postseason since the College World Series in 2022. This would also be the first time that the Aggies host the Longhorns in a regional and/or super regional in College Station in the history of the modern format of college baseball's postseason.

The three-seed Cal Golden Bears and four-seed Abilene Christian Wildcats are the other two teams projected to be in the College Station Regional with Texas and Texas A7M.

Texas is one of seven Big 12 teams projected to make the 64-team postseason field. The Oklahoma schools are projected to be the only two regional hosts from the conference.
