2017 Projected Field Of 64


It seems like it was yesterday Coastal Carolina hoisted the national championship trophy in celebration after beating Arizona to win the program’s first national title.

Who will be that team when the 2017 campaign culminates in June?

For now, top-ranked TCU is the clear-cut favorite and headlines our Preseason Field of 64 projections. The Frogs welcome back a host of seasoned arms, while most its offensive lineup also is back.

The Frogs, who are the top national seed, are joined by three teams from the SEC, two from the ACC, and a team each from the Pac-12, Big 12 and American as top-eight national seeds.

In terms of overall postseason bids, the SEC leads the way with nine and the ACC comes in with eight. Meanwhile, the Pac-12 is next in line with five and the Big Ten and Big 12 each have four teams projected to make the postseason field. There’s also the Sun Belt, Conference USA, American and Big West, who each are projected to received three postseason bids.

Let the games begin as we take our crack at how the postseason field will look on Selection Monday.
