UCLA took the dreaded top spot over the Tigers, but the regional round is set and the Tigers are paired with Houston.

LSU Baseball

The early exit from Hoover may have cost LSU the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Baseball Tournament, but that might not be the worst thing, since No. 1 hasn't won the CWS since 1999.

It's the No. 2 national seed for the Tigers, with a chance for revenge in the Super Regional against Houston. In the meantime, UNC-Wilmington, Tulane and Lehigh will come to the box for the Baton Rouge Regional this weekend.

Tigers take on Lehigh at 3 p.m. on Friday. Also, obligatory:
