AUSTIN — AUSTIN -- Tennessee Tech has upset #4 seed Ole Miss to win the regional in Oxford. That sends Tennessee Tech to Austin for the Super Regionals to play Texas.
The Golden Eagles are 52-10. This is only their sixth appearance in the NCAA regionals. The other years were 1956, 1997, 2001, 2009 and 2017.
The Longhorns advanced after going undefeated in Regional play against Texas Southern, Texas A&M and Indiana.
The scene is similar to 2000 and 2014, when Texas was not supposed to host the Super Regionals but upsets sent Penn State and Houston to Austin, and the Longhorns won both series to advance to the College World Series.
Unfortunately, the game at Disch-Falk Field is sold out, but you can still watch it on ESPN2.
They'll play Saturday, June 9 at 2 p.m., Sunday, June 10 at 2 p.m., and if necessary, June 11 at 12 p.m.
