But we will switch back to Saturday’s Game 1 where both teams will be aiming to start on the front football.
LSU (38-23) secured its NCAA Knoxville Super Regional place with a battle victory over Oregon to advance from the Eugene Regional, while Tennessee (48-16) beat Liberty to race through the Knoxville Regional.
Entering this battle on Saturday night, LSU leads the all-time series against Tennessee, 58-25, while this weekend’s series marks the second meeting between the programs this season.
Last time out, the Vols swept a three-game SEC regular-season series with the Tigers on March 26-28 by a combined total of four runs. I promise you that tonight’s game will be an even closer encounter, as LSU is still not prepared to leave the NCAA tournament and has eyes on the 2021 College World Series to give retiring head coach Paul Mainieri a good sending off.
