After yet another Pac-12 series victory, USC Baseball has moved back into hosting an NCAA Regional according to the projections made by D1Baseball.

The Trojans, who have been a two seed for the last couple of weeks, essentially switched seeds with Arizona State after the Sun Devils lost two of three to UCLA over the weekend. ASU, California, and USC are all tied for second in the Pac-12 Standings. USC travels to Berkeley this weekend before the final series of the season next weekend when the Trojans will host the Sun Devils.

The other seeds in USC's regionals are: (2) Cal State Fullerton, (3) Nevada, and (4) San Diego. The Trojans are familiar with Cal State Fullerton having split the season series. USC won on February 17th, 6-4 but fell 5-3 in 12 innings on April 28th.

If USC ends up hosting a regional, it will be the eighth time in school history that they have done so and first since 2002. USC's 34 wins this season so far are the school's most since 2005 when they advanced to the NCAA Super Regionals.
