Ole Miss at UL-Lafayette

WHEN: 7 p.m. Saturday

WHERE: M.L. “Tigue” Moore Field, Lafayette

IN-GAME UPDATES: On Twitter at @RabalaisAdv and online at


WHAT TO WATCH: The team with the nation’s best record, UL-Lafayette, hosts an Ole Miss team that is one of just two super regional survivors from the nation’s top-rated conference (SEC). This will be one of the biggest athletic weekends in Acadiana history. The pressure will be on the Ragin’ Cajuns to get to the College World Series, because of their No. 6 national seed and No. 1 ranking in the major polls. The Rebels will be trying to return to Omaha for the first time in 42 years.
