The Tigers ran out of magic on Sunday night in the first game of the Hattiesburg Regional final against the host and No. 11 national seed Southern Mississippi.
LSU overcame late deficits in each of its first two games in the NCAA Tournament, including in the first matchup against the Golden Eagles on Saturday. But the Tigers couldn’t overcome a four-run gap in the ninth inning this time around as they fell 8-4, forcing a decisive Game 7 with a spot in the super regional round on the line.
These two teams are becoming very acquainted with each other, as this will be the third matchup between them in as many days. The Tigers will look to prevail and advance out of a regional on the road for the second straight season.
The game will begin at 3 p.m. CT on Monday, and it will be broadcast on ESPNU. Here’s everything you need to know to follow as LSU takes the diamond with its season on the line.
