TUCSON - Twelfth-seeded Arizona softball is set to travel to Baton Rouge, La., this weekend for a best-of-three series with fifth-seeded LSU in the NCAA Super Regional. A berth to the 2015 Women's College World Series is the prize.

Arizona and LSU meet Saturday and Sunday with all three games on the ESPN family of networks, with Pam Ward and Cheri Kempf calling the action. Game 1 on Saturday will take place at 12:00 p.m. MST on ESPN3. Game 2 begins Sunday at 2:00 p.m. on ESPN, with the third game set for 5:00 p.m. on ESPN2 if necessary.

Tickets for the Baton Rouge Super Regional can be purchased here.

The Wildcats, who eliminated LSU from the NCAA Tournament in 2014 in the Tucson Regional, will look to do it again, this time as the visiting team.

Arizona has appeared in the super regionals, which began in 2005, 10 of the last 11 years, including last year at Louisiana Lafayette, when the Cats were swept by the Cajuns.

The Wildcats are in search of their 23rd Women's College World Series appearance, and first since 2010.

Arizona is coming off a dramatic extra-inning victory over Minnesota in the Tucson Regional on Sunday night to advance.
