The fourth-ranked Auburn Tigers softball team, led by Bryan County High School alumna Tiffany Howard, will host an NCAA Super Regional against No. 13 Louisiana-Lafayette beginning Friday.
The first game of the best-of-three series will be at 2 p.m. Friday and will be broadcast on ESPNU. The second game will be at noon Saturday on ESPN, with the deciding game, if necessary, taking place immediately afterward. All games will be at Jane B. Moore Field in Auburn, Alabama, according to auburntigers.com.
The winner of the three-game set goes to the Women’s College World Series, which begins next Thursday in Oklahoma City.
Auburn won its regional last weekend, beating Tennessee Tech 4-1 on Friday and South Alabama 1-0 on Saturday and 7-4 on Sunday. Howard batted 3 for 10 in the three games with two runs scored and two RBIs.
