Conference Predictions

We're making our best guesses at who will come out on top in each of the Power 5 Conferences plus the American!


The ACC is poised to be particularly strong in 2020. Louisville should lead the way in the Atlantic, but Florida State, NC State, Wake Forest, and Clemson will likely all be Regional teams.

In the ACC Coastal, Miami will look to build upon their 2019 season. The Hurricanes are our preseason favorite, but Duke will bring back most of a team that almost eliminated Vanderbilt in the Nashville Super Region last season.

While we are picking ECU to win the America, we don't expect the Pirates to run away with the conference like they did in 2019. Houston should be improved from a year ago, and Tulane, UConn, and UCF are positioned to compete for Regional berths.

The Big Ten should again be led by Michigan who brings back a talented team. Minnesota (with a much more manageable schedule than last year) will compete at the top of the conference, along with Ohio State, Indiana, and Illinois.

The Big XII will likely be one of the most balanced conferences in 2020. Texas Tech, an Omaha staple as of late, is the preseason favorite. Teams two through six in the Big XII could finish in any order, but we like the Oklahoma schools at second and third.

Will we see a return of Arizona State in 2020? That is what we are predicting. The Sun Devils' offense should be prolific and their pitching will be improved. Arizona is our dark horse pick as the Wildcats should feature one of the most lethal offenses in the country.

The SEC East could feature three Regional (or even Super Regional) hosts in 2020. It's hard to pick against Vanderbilt, but both Georgia and Florida should have rotations that can get them to Omaha.

The SEC West is the deepest division in College Baseball. Arkansas is the early favorite, but the division likely has six Regional teams that could all compete for a division title. It is anyone's guess who will come out on top of this blood bath.
