LSU To Face Familiar Foe In Super Regional
As the SEC regular season was winding down I lamented to you about how I thought the baseball rivalry between LSU and Mississippi State was THE best in college baseball. That rivalry will be renewed this weekend during the NCAA tournament Super Regional in Baton Rouge. The official Super Regional schedule is expected to be announced by the NCAA shortly after 7 AM this morning (Tuesday)
LSU earned the Super Regional berth by sweeping their NCAA Regional bracket against Texas Southern, Southeastern Louisiana, and Rice University.
The Bulldogs took a path through the loser's bracket of the Hattiesburg Regional. They dropped their opening contest against South Alabama then they defeated Illinois-Chicago. They then faced South Alabama again and finally took two games from Southern Miss yesterday.
The Super Regional will be a best of three series with the winner advancing to the College World Series in Omaha.
