No. 1 ranked LSU softball to kick off road trip at Miss. State
BATON ROUGE - No. 1 ranked LSU softball is packing up for the team's longest road trip of the season with the opening game coming on Wednesday evening against Mississippi State in Starkville.
After their encounter with the Bulldogs, they'll head to Knoxville for a three-game SEC series against Tennessee this weekend. Finally, they wrap up the tour with a midweek doubleheader next Wednesday against McNeese State in Lake Charles.
The Tigers recently boosted their record to 36-3 overall and 9-3 in conference play prior to the start of the Spring Break run. The series of road games comes at a crucial time in the season as only four weeks of regular season play remain in their 2015 campaign. MSU is coming into tomorrow's road trip opener on a five-straight tear of wins.
Tomorrow night's game at 6 p.m. can be streamed online via SEC Network+ through WatchESPN. According to LSUSports.net, radio coverage will resume locally on ESPN 104.5/9 later on this week.
