Only four Florida State team sports remain in action for the academic year and the season could be on the line for all of them within the next. As is customary, we tell you what to keep an eye on over the next week.

It’s What to Watch For Wednesday:

1. The Tallahassee Super Regional
Defending national champion and No. 4 national seed Florida State will aim for a second straight trip to the Women’s College World Series this weekend as it hosts Oklahoma State, the No. 13 national seed, in the best-of-3 Tallahassee Super Regional. FSU swept the Tallahassee Regional with a pair of run-rule victories over Bethune-Cookman and South Florida before edging South Carolina in a thriller, 7-6.

The Cowgirls also swept through the Stillwater Regional, but the three wins came by a combined five runs. Oklahoma State hasn’t been to the Women’s College World Series since 2011. The teams will play at 7 p.m. EST on Thursday and Friday on ESPN and then at noon EST on Saturday if necessary. FSU is just 7-11 all-time against Oklahoma State.

2. The NCAA Baseball Selection Show
As a team squarely on the bubble, Florida State baseball will find out on Monday if it will be in the NCAA Tournament for a 42nd straight year. The Seminoles’ streak of four consecutive appearances in the ACC Championship and two straight automatic bids will come to an end after a 7-4 loss to Wake Forest in the ACC Tournament opener on Tuesday. FSU will play No. 3 seed NC State on Friday in its final game of the ACC Tournament. A victory would probably go a long way in helping Florida State’s cause.

3. NCAA East Track and Field Preliminaries
A number of Florida State track and field athletes will try to cement a spot in the NCAA Championships in Jacksonville on Thursday and Friday of this week. A program-record 23 FSU women will be vying for a spot in Austin in addition to 19 men. The NCAA Championships begin on June 5.
