The SEC Network was scheduled to air the first NCAA Baton Rouge regional championship game between the Tigers (50-10) and the winner of Sunday’s early game between Tulane and UNC-Wilmington. Presumably, weather delays are behind the network’s decision to drop the game.
The game will be available digitally on ESPN3.com.
A start time for Sunday’s night first championship game has been pushed back from its scheduled time of 7 p.m. Thunderstorms rolled through Baton Rouge about a half hour before Tulane and UNC-Wilmington were scheduled to play their elimination game at 3 p.m
As of 3:55, a start time has not been determined for the Green Wave-Seahawks game. A start time for the LSU game will be set based on the status of the first game.
LSU can win the regional and advance to a super regional by winning one of a possible two games over the next day. If the Tigers lose on Sunday night, an if-necessary game is set for 7 p.m. Monday.
The Tigers beat UNC-Wilmington in the winner bracket final – a game that started two hours after scheduled because of a more than three hour rain delay in the early game.
Rain has affected all three days of the NCAA Baton Rouge regional. A storm forced a delay in the first inning of LSU’s regional-opening 10-3 win over Lehigh on Friday.
