UPDATE

Today’s game has been delayed due to weather and will now begin at 8:06 pm ET.


Gameday is here for the Kentucky Wildcats, who take on the LSU Tigers at 3 pm ET today in Game 1 of the Baton Rouge Super Regional on ESPN.

In just their second Super Regional trip in program history, the No. 12 Bat Cats are now searching for the first College World Series berth in program history.

Standing in their way will be the No. 5 Tigers, led by outfielder Dylan Crews and pitcher Paul Skenes, who may very well be the top two picks in the upcoming MLB Draft.

The two teams faced off in Baton Rouge earlier this season, where the Tigers won two of three games.

Go Cats!!!
