LSU is 46-16 on the season, while Stony Brook, the America East Conference champions, comes in at 50-12.

Game one of the series is scheduled for Friday morning at 11 am (cdt). Sophomore right-hander Brandon McNitt (8-3, 2.69 ERA) will start on the hill for the Seawolves, while the Tigers will counter with freshman right-hander Aaron Nola (7-4, 3.66 ERA).

Game two, on Saturday, is also scheduled to begin at 11 am (cdt). Senior right-hander Tyler Johnson (11-1, 2.13 ERA) will get the start for Stony Brook, with sophomore right-hander Kevin Gausman (11-1, 2.72) getting the start for LSU.

A third game, if necessary, would take place on Sunday, at noon (cdt).
