NCAA announces game times and network assignments for Super Regionals

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — VCU and Virginia will play in different NCAA baseball Super Regionals in different states, but you can see both on the same network back to back Friday, Saturday, and (if necessary) Sunday.

The NCAA announced Tuesday morning that VCU and Miami will start Super Regional play Friday at noon at Mark Light Field in Coral Gables, Fla. The game will begin at noon and be broadcast on ESPNU. Game two between VCU and Miami will also start at noon and be broadcast on ESPNU.

All Super Regional series are in the best-of-three forma, meaning game three may not be necessary, but if the teams split the first two games, game three will also begin at noon and may be broadcast on ESPNU or ESPN2.

VCU won its first ever regional title by defeating Dallas Baptist University 3-1 Monday night. The team is due back in Richmond Tuesday.

Virginia will play in its sixth Super Regional in seven years after defeating Southern California 14-9 early Monday morning to win the Lake Elsinore (Cal.) region.

By virtue of Maryland’s upset of top-seed UCLA in the Los Angeles region, UVA will host the Terrapins in a Super Regional that runs Friday through Sunday, renewing an old ACC rivalry.

The NCAA announced Tuesday morning the Cavs and Terps will begin play Friday at 4:00 PM at Davenport Field in Charlottesville. The game will appear on ESPNU. Game two will begin at 3:00 PM and also appear on ESPNU. Game three (if necessary) will be played at 3:00 PM and be broadcast either on ESPNU or ESPN2.

After defeating USC, the ‘Hoos stuck around LA in case they were to play UCLA. The team is now headed back from the West Coast and is expected back in Charlottesville Tuesday.
