NCAA baseball tournament bracket 2021

The NCAA released the full baseball tournament bracket Monday with the 16 host sites and the rankings of the top teams in the nation. 

Arkansas leads the way as the bracket's No. 1 seed after going 46-10 and winning the SEC baseball tournament. 

Teams will now head to the regionals, where they will battle for the chance to move on to the super regionals. The top seed in each bracket will face the No. 4 seed with the middle two teams playing off against one another. A team will need to total three wins in a regional and everyone faces double elimination. 

From there, the winner of the Fayetteville regional will take on the No. 16 regional, the No. 2 regional winner will take on the No. 15 regional winner and so on in best-of-three series to advance to the men's College World Series quarterfinals.
