Defending national champion LSU is gearing up to start its Road to Omaha against Wofford in the Chapel Hill Regional. As the Tigers prepare to face the great unknown, head coach Jay Johnson expressed his excitement for the challenge of uncovering information about their first-round opponent.

This matchup marks a significant moment for LSU, venturing away from their home turf at Alex Box Stadium. The Tigers, with a storied history in college baseball, have their sights set on making a statement in the NCAA Tournament once again.

Wofford, making its second regional appearance, is not to be underestimated. The Terriers showcased their resilience in the Southern Conference Tournament, winning six out of seven games in a five-day span to secure their spot in the tournament.
