UCLA and Cal State Fullerton were among 16 schools awarded NCAA baseball regionals Sunday.

UCLA clinched at least a share of the Pacific 10 Conference title with a victory over Arizona State on Saturday. The Bruins, runners up to South Carolina at the College World Series last season, played host to a regional and a super regional in 2010.

Other Pac-10 schools that will play host to regionals are Arizona State and Oregon State.

Fullerton, the Big West Conference champion, has played host to a regional the last four seasons and seven times in the last eight seasons. The Titans lost to UCLA in the super regional in 2010.

South Carolina, Georgia Tech, Texas, North Carolina, Virginia, Clemson, Texas A&M, Texas Christian, Florida, Rice, Vanderbilt and Florida State also will play host to regionals June 3-6.

The 64-team tournament field will be announced Monday. The eight super regionals will be announced June 6. The College World Series begins June 18.
