The series begins Friday at 4 p.m. and will continue Saturday at 4 p.m. If needed, a third game will be played Sunday at 4 p.m. The winners of the super regional will advance to the College World Series in Omaha, beginning June 15.

The Pack advanced to the super regionals with its 9-2 win over William & Mary on Sunday. Rice will make its way to Raleigh after topping Oregon 11-4 Monday night.
