Who the Heck Are the Creighton Bluejays?: An Early Look at the Georgia Bulldogs' Opening Opponent in the Corvallis Regional

New, comments

The Diamond Dogs will open the NCAA Tournament on Friday against the Creighton Bluejays, the representatives of the Omaha-based college who will be fighting for the right to advance to, uh, Omaha.

Creighton won the regular-season and tourney titles in the Missouri Valley Conference, but, despite their 44-14 record, the Jays boast an RPI of only 29, which lags well behind the Bulldogs’.

The Corvallis Regional represents Creighton’s ninth trip to the NCAA Tournament, and their first since 2007. In five appearances since winning the 1991 Los Angeles Regional and making the College World Series, the Bluejays have posted a 4-10 record in regional play, being eliminated in the first round in Austin in 1992, South Bend in 1999, Tempe in 2000, Lincoln in 2005, and Fayetteville in 2007.

Go ‘Dawgs!
