Happened last year, too. Link

Noticed both seasons it rotated with the super regional. (Eugene, Seattle, LA, and Athens in 2018)

But what they are showing is incorrect. The 2018 Athens link shows ut as the home team in both games. Click on the first game and the box score shows UGA as the home team.

They are incorrect.




I have seen instances in which the host team has either volunteered to be visitors Game 1 to celebrate Game 2 and Game 3, or they lost the coin toss and were forced to be visitors Game 1. But each team gets a chance to be Home and Visitors in Game 1 and 2.

I don't ever recall the visitor as the home team in the first game of a Super Regional. Cal probably has been the home team as a higher (1-8) seed on the road, inasmuch as they cannot host a Regional nor a Super Regional.

Off the top of my head I cant recall it, but I know the possibility is there. Ive heard cointoss or Host preference I don't know which. Like in the Norman regional last weekend, Oklahoma wanted Wisconsin to be the Home team in their first game where they would host the regional finals game 2.

Figured it out! They are showing it as it is shown in the overall bracket. 1 over 16, but 9 over 8. 5 over 12, but 13 over 4. 3 over 14, but 11 over 6. 7 over 10, but 15 over 2.
