College baseball has officially flipped into postseason mode. The regular season is now done, and now teams are making their final attempts to boost their postseason resume. On the eve of conference tournament week getting underway, D1Baseball has released a brand new NCAA Tournament Field of 64 projection.

31 teams will earn automatic bids to the NCAA Tournament through winning their respective conference tournaments. From there, 33 teams would earn at-large bids.

The field is far from set, with a lot that can happen from top to bottom. There are probably only seven or eight teams that are 100 percent locked into hosting a regional, with the remaining spots still up for grabs.

Some teams will go on runs this week in their conference tournaments. If they manage to win their tournament, they could steal a bid and wreak havoc on the projected field. D1Baseball’s field is based on who they think will win each respective conference tournament, but bid stealers could completely change everything.

Here is the full Field of 64 projection from D1Baseball, which was released on Tuesday afternoon.
