Five SEC schools - Florida, LSU, Ole Miss, South Carolina and Vanderbilt - earned the right to host postseason baseball. The Razorbacks will not be paired with a conference foe in the Regionals, meaning they will be sent to one of the other sites.
Because of its hot finish to the season, many experts believe Arkansas will likely be sent to a Regional close to Fayetteville. Oklahoma State and TCU are the two closest host sites.
The selection show begins at 11 a.m. Monday and will be televised nationally on ESPNU.
