Also, for the sixth straight year, the Tigers will host one of the 16 four-team regional rounds at Tiger Park in Baton Rouge starting on Friday. LSU is the No. 7 national seed, one of five Southeastern Conference teams that earned Top 8 national seeding. 

The first round schedule on Friday will have LSU (32-19) meeting McNeese State (Southland Conference, 34-24) at 3 p.m. CDT in a game televised by ESPNU and broadcast on the LSU Sports Radio Network.
