So will the Arizona Wildcats get in? Most experts have them just on the outside of the field looking in, thanks in large part to the team finishing just 14-16 in Pac-12 play, and compiling a record of 6-8 teams against other teams in the top 50 of the RPI (Arizona finished at 46th).

Some things happened this weekend that could possibly help Arizona out. There were not nearly as many bid-stealers in conference tournaments as last year, with many favorites out of one-bid leagues following up their regular season crowns with tournament championships.

Arizona also benefited from fellow bubble team Washington not winning the Pac-12 title on Saturday when the Huskies gave away a two-run, ninth-inning lead to the Stanford Cardinal in dramatic fashion. However, Washington did still finish six full games ahead of the Wildcats in the conference standings, and own a head-to-head sweep.

If Arizona does get into the field, they will be heading to one of these sixteen locations as the NCAA announced the Regional host sites on Sunday night:
