The Virginia Cavaliers are the overall No. 3 seed in the 2014 NCAA Baseball Championship. In addition to hosting the Charlottesville Regional this upcoming weekend, the Hoos will have the opportunity to host a Super Regional the following weekend, should they advance.

Here are the eight national seeds:

No. 1 national seed: Oregon State
No. 2 national seed: Florida
No. 3 national seed: Virginia
No. 4 national seed: Indiana
No. 5 national seed: Florida State
No. 6 national seed: Louisiana-Lafayette
No. 7 national seed: TCU
No. 8 national seed: LSU

Virginia was thought by many late in the season to be a contender for the overall No. 1 national seed, until they dropped their first ACC series of the season, to Wake Forest, and finished 1-2 in pool play during the ACC Tournament.

Joining Virginia (44-13) in Charlottesville will be second-seeded Arkansas (38-23), third-seeded Liberty (41-16), and fourth-seeded Bucknell (39-19-1).

Paired up with Virginia's Super Regional is South Carolina (42-16), who hosts Maryland (36-21), Old Dominion (36-24), and Campbell (40-19) in Columbia, South Carolina.

Sixty percent of national seeds typically reach the College World Series. Virginia will first face Bucknell on Friday at 2:00 p.m. on ESPN 3.
