UT, A&M to Meet in Houston

Updated: Monday, May 26 2014, 10:15 PM CDT

The Texas baseball team discovered its postseason destination as the NCAA unveiled its 64-team tournament field Monday morning on ESPNU.

The Longhorns were awarded a No. 2 seed and will play in the Houston Regional hosted by Rice, where the Owls are the No. 1 seed. No. 3 seed Texas A&M and No. 4 seed George Mason are also in the regional.

Texas (38-18) will open play Friday against the Aggies (33-24) at 3 p.m. CT in a game that will be televised on ESPNU.

Fans interested in purchasing tickets should go through the Rice athletics department as tickets will not be available through the Texas athletics department. Click here for ticket information or call (713) 522-OWLS.

The Longhorns are making their 56th appearance in an NCAA Regional, most by any school in Division I. Texas is making its 14th appearance in the NCAA Tournament under head coach Augie Garrido, having advanced to eight Super Regionals and to the College World Series seven times (2000, 2002-05, 2009, 2011).

Though the Longhorns and Aggies have met 368 times in history, with Texas holding a 240-123-5 advantage, this will be the first time the teams have met in NCAA Championship play. Texas is 222-54-2 all-time against Rice, including 1-1 in NCAA Regional play (7-4 loss in Houston in 2008; 4-1 win in Austin in 2010). Texas has never played George Mason.

The winner of the Houston Regional will go on to face the winner of the Baton Rouge Regional in a Super Regional. LSU, Houston, Bryant and Southeastern Louisiana are the four teams in the Baton Rouge Region.
