After the many miles traveled by some teams last week, the Road to Omaha either continues or comes to an abrupt halt for 16 teams this weekend.
With the NCAA Super Regionals around the corner, we take an in-depth look at how each team stacks up against the other.
In our last NCAA Super Regional preview, we took an inside look at the Nashville Super Regional. Now it's time to take an in-depth look at the Austin Super Regional, which features Arizona State (42-16) and Texas (46-16).
For Arizona State, the weekend boils down to its pitching staff and ability to hit in a huge ballpark. The Sun Devils have a solid one-two punch in Brady Rodgers and Kramer Champlin, but there's some uncertainty about the No. 3 spot. Offensively, the Sun Devils need to successfully execute the hit-and-run game the entire weekend to advance to the College World Series.
For Texas, its a safe bet it will get some solid pitching. So, all attention this weekend will be on the offense. The Longhorns tend to be very opportunistic if teams gives them scoring chances. So, offensively, the Longhorns must continue to execute their small ball game in flawless fashion this weekend. Should the 'Horns do that, they have a great chance to advance.
