The Colorado men's golf team was selected Monday for the Southeast/Auburn Regional, which begins May 15.

Colorado, ranked No. 48 in the nation (GolfStat; No. 53 Golfweek) is the No. 8 seed in the field and will be looking to advance to the NCAA Championship Finals for the first time since 2002.

The Buffs are coming off a fourth place finish in the Pac-12 Championships, their second best finish in a conference meet in the last decade.

The last two national champions, Alabama and Texas, are in the 14-team field that will compete at Auburn University Golf Club. The Crimson Tide are the defending national champions and are the nation's top-ranked team and the No. 1 seed, while the Longhorns were the 2012 champs, are ranked No. 13 and are the No. 3 seed. No. 12 Virginia Tech is the No. 2 seed.

Other schools in field, in seeded order from four through 14 are: Auburn, New Mexico, Brigham Young, Kennesaw State, Colorado, Louisville, UNC-Greensboro, UC Davis, Sam Houston State, St. John's and Alabama State.

Buffs coach Roy Edwards selected junior David Oraee, sophomore Philip Juel-Berg and three freshmen, Ethan Freeman and identical twins Jeremy and Yannik Paul, for the regional squad.
