(SportingAlert) — The NCAA Division I Baseball Super Regional tournament gets underway on Friday with four games, as the battle for World Series spots begins.
ESPN, ESPNU and WatchESPN.com will have live streaming of the games. Live scores and game stats will be on NCAA.com.
Four games are down on the schedule for the day, including the clash between the surprised package, in No. 12 Kennesaw State (40-22), who will face No. 5 Louisville at the Jim Patterson Stadium in Kentucky.
This will be the first Division I Super Regional appearance for the Owls, who are hoping to continue their impressive run in the postseason.
The clash between the two teams is a best-of-three series and the winner of the series will advance to Omaha, Nebraska, for the College World Series.

Vanderbilt (44-18) will square off against Stanford (34-24), while Oklahoma State (48-16), seeking the programs first College World Series berth since 1999, will battle with a very unpredictable UC Irvine in their best-of-three Super Regional series.
