Last night, UH came roaring back from a 4-0 deficit in Baton Rouge to force an elimination game tonight. The winner will play the winner of tonight’s game between Texas and Texas A&M in the next round.
The Cougars faced off against Aaron Nola, perhaps the best pitcher in college baseball this season. They play Southeast Louisiana in an elimination game tomorrow. The winner plays LSU tomorrow evening.
UH is the number 2 seed in the group, which includes LSU, SE Louisiana, and Bryant. The Baton Rouge and Houston regionals are paired, so UH will Rice with a trip to Omaha on the line if they both win their regionals.
