The other teams in the Raleigh field are Georgia Tech, Washington, Florida State, Texas A&M, Mercer, Kentucky, Texas Tech, Wake Forest, South Alabama, Memphis, Rice and Bethune-Cookman.

Minnesota's last team appearance at the NCAA Regionals was in 2009. The Gophers placed seventh in Galloway, New Jersey.
