The college baseball season is in full swing as of Friday for NCAA Division 2 baseball this weekend. Only 4 of the 13 of the Missouri teams are in action this weekend, however, oddly enough the only teams playing are coming from the MIAA conference.
The matchups that intrigue me the most are Missouri Western vs. #39 Lubbock Christian and Central Missouri @ North Alabama for 3. The Griffins start themselves off with a top matchup right away in a 4 game pool play type set up in Grand Prairie, Texas.
Central Missouri will travel to North Alabama to take on another division 2 school that could post some challenges despite have a so-so 2016 season. Central Missouri is the favorite to win the MIAA this year and could very well be set up at another World Series run.
