The NCAA selected Auburn to host a regional in the 2022 NCAA Baseball Tournament. The Florida State Seminoles, UCLA Bruins and Southeast Louisiana Lions also were selected to compete in the Auburn Regional.
Losing the series means that Auburn will be playing Kentucky, again as the fifth seed in the First round of the SEC Tournament in Hoover. The winner of which will play LSU. "I could not stress anymore about trying to play a game up there with so many fans there and being so close to Auburn," head coach Butch Thompson said. "We need to put our best foot forward to win the first game and enter the double elimination portion of the tournament next week."
The Tigers have finished the season 12-1 in midweek games and 21-5 in non-conference play.
