The state of Nebraska had quite a presence during the start of the NCAA Tournament selection show Monday on ESPNU.

The first regional reveal — the Los Angeles Regional — included Omaha.

Creighton’s name popped up on the screen in the second regional — the Corvallis, Oregon, Regional.

The third bracket to be unveiled was Oklahoma City. Nebraska.

For now, Nebraska is a baseball state.

For the first time, all three Division I institutions will have a team in the same NCAA Tournament.

“I think it’s just fantastic. I think everybody knows this area is very solid in baseball, and I think it’s just awesome for getting kids excited about baseball and the programs in this state,” Nebraska coach Darin Erstad said Monday. “Nothing but good can come out of that.”
