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 Charlottesville Super Regional. Now it's time to take an in-depth look at the Columbia Super Regional, which features Connecticut (45-18) and South Carolina (47-14).
For Connecticut, this weekend is all about continuing where it left off last weekend at the Clemson Regional. The Huskies played an exceptional brand of baseball after dropping the postseason opener to Coastal Carolina. The Huskies need to keep up the pressure offensively while the defense needs to be stable against the opportunistic Gamecocks.
For South Carolina, the weekend is all about playing the brand of baseball it has played the entire season. The Gamecocks have had a plethora of injury setbacks this season, but they've responded in impressive fashion each time someone has gone down. The Gamecocks have a tough chore against Connecticut's pitching, so the weekend series likely hinges on the offense establishing an early presence.
