(Oklahoma City-AP) -- As many as five Big 12 teams could get bids to the N-C-A-A Division One baseball tournament this year.

Last year, six Big 12 teams made it.

Baylor and Oklahoma are assured bids in the 64-team field this year because they're hosting regionals.

In the tournament, 29 automatic bids go out to conference champions and there are 35 at-large bids.

There are 16 four-team regionals. Pairings for the regionals will be announced Monday.
