The Seminoles have advanced to the Super Regional for the 17th time in 21 years since the format changed in 1999. Louisiana State has been this position almost as many times as they are playing in their 14th Super Regional. Florida State advanced by dominating their regional with a 13-7 victory over FAU in their opening game and then pounding the no. 4 national seed UGA twice 12-3 and 10-1. The Tigers were not as dominant after defeating Stony Brook 17-4 they needed to late inning scores to defeat Southern Mississippi by a scores of 8-4 and 6-4.
The Super Regional format is a best of three series with the host team playing as the home team in game one, the traveling team will be the home team in game two and the home team for the final game — if necessary — is decided by a coin flip. The Tigers play in Alex Box Stadium which is the most electric venues in all of college baseball giving LSU an advantage by creating an intense atmosphere. The stadium seats of 10,000 and LSU has been among the nation’s attendance leaders finishing No. 1 from 1996-2018.
It is surprising that the NCAA decided not to schedule the weekend games in the prime time slots. .
