The Daily Aggie :: 05/16/16 :: WAC Baseball Tiebreaker Scenarios

The Aggie baseball team sits just one game behind Seattle for first place in the WAC. The Aggies have an excellent shot at winning the regular season title and are nearly guaranteed a top two seed and a first round bye. The only way the Aggies do not get a first round by and a top two seed is if they are swept by Northern Colorado this weekend and Utah Valley sweeps their series with Chicago State. The less likely of those two scenarios is the Aggies getting swept by Northern Colorado as UVU could very well sweep Chicago State. Northern Colorado has plenty to play for as they will qualify for the WAC Tournament with a single win in the series with the Aggies.

The following are the potential tiebreakers as determined by the WAC office.

Potential Ties Who Holds Tiebreak
Seattle U – NM State -- NM State (H2H)
NM State – Utah Valley -- Utah Valley (H2H)
NM State – Sacramento State -- NM State (H2H)
Utah Valley – Sacramento State -- Utah Valley (H2H)
NMSU-UVU-SAC
1. UVU (4-2, H2H)
2. NMSU (4-2)
3. SAC (1-5)

These are also the tournament-qualifying scenarios for Northern Colorado, CSU Bakersfield and UTRGV

· Northern Colorado is in tournament with at least one win.

· CSU Bakersfield must finish with one more win than UTRGV OR (sweep of North Dakota AND NM State sweep of Northern Colorado)

· UTRGV is in playoff with sweep of Grand Canyon OR equal amount of wins as CSUB OR (2 wins against GCU AND NM State sweep of Northern Colorado)
