For the seventeenth time in school history, the LSU Tiger baseball team will partake in the College World Series. The Bayou Bengals will go toe to toe with TCU. The game will take place at 2pm Sunday at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, Nebraska.

Coach Paul Mainieri has coached his Tigers to a 53-10 record and has yet to drop a game in postseason play. The No. 1 ranked Tigers swept a very good Louisiana-Lafayette team over the weekend. In the Baton Rouge Super Regional, LSU beat ULL 4-3 on Saturday then a 6-3 win over the Ragin’ Cajuns on Sunday.

The TCU Horned Frogs won the Big 12 Conference regular season championship with an impressive 49-13 record. They fended off the Texas A&M Aggies Monday night in a 16-inning contest, finally winning 5-4.

The LSU Tigers are currently 6-1 all time against the Horned Frogs from TCU. TCU is making back-to-back trips to Omaha and this marks the second trip in three years for the Tigers.

Noteworthy: This year’s field is made up of 50% SEC teams. The SEC is once again unquestionably the greatest conference in the NCAA.

Also Noteworthy: Shortstop for the LSU Tigers, Alex Bregman, was selected 2nd overall by the Houston Astros in the MLB Draft Monday Night. Get ready to see him continue his tremendous success in America’s game.

Below is a list of the weekend slateĀ at TD Ameritrade Park:
