The field has been revealed!

Sixty-four teams have had their tickets punched and will try to make it to the College World Series in Omaha.

One of those teams represent the Big East: The Xavier Musketeers.

Xavier will be a #4 seed in the Nashville regional, and they have a tough road ahead of them. They'll be facing #1 seed, and regional host, Vanderbilt. The Commodores won the CWS in 2014, and were the runners-up last season. The game will be played on Friday at 8 p.m. ET.

Xavier was both the regular season and Big East tournament champions, as they defeated Creighton 8-7 in Sunday's final. The Musketeers, who finished the year 30-28 overall, excelled in the second half of conference play, leading them to a #1 seed in the Big East tournament.
