The South Carolina Gamecocks advanced to their 13th Super Regional in school history [Supers were introduced to college postseason in 1999] after sweeping the Greenville Regional with wins over Ohio St (8-3), East Carolina (4-2) and a win over UNC-Wilmington on Monday (8-4).
The Gamecocks played in Fayetteville earlier in the season in a three game series but lost it two games to one [W 3-2, L 2-0, L 3-0]. South Carolina was the only team in the SEC to win a game on the Razorbacks home field this season though.
The two teams also met up in the SEC Tournament and Arkansas defeated the Gamecocks again by a score of 13-8.
Arkansas has been one of the better hitting teams in the SEC this year and it will be a tough task for the Gamecocks to steal this Super from them. But these two teams know each other well enough now that it could go either way.
Game times and television designations are as follows:
Game 1: Saturday, June 9 - 6:30pm EDT (ESPN 2)
Game 2: Sunday, June 10 - 3:00pm EDT (ESPN)
Game 3 (if necessary): Monday, June 11 - 7:00pm EDT (ESPN)
