OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Pac-12 champion UCLA is the No. 1 national seed for the NCAA baseball tournament.

The Bruins (47-8) won every series for the first time in program history and carry a 10-game winning streak into the tournament, which opens with regional play Friday.

The NCAA selection committee announced the 64-team tournament field on Monday. The No. 2 seed is Vanderbilt (49-10), which has won 22 of its last 23 games and is the first team to sweep the Southeastern Conference regular-season and tournament championships since it did so in 2007.

Top eight national seeds play at home for super regionals if they win regionals. Behind UCLA and Vanderbilt are Georgia Tech, Georgia, Arkansas, Mississippi State, Louisville and Texas Tech.
