Bring on the Tigers!

The LSU Tigers, that is. In yesterday’s SEC Softball Tournament action, LSU defeated South Carolina 7-3, setting up Missouri’s opponent for today’s SEC Quarterfinals in Tuscaloosa. The first pitch is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. CT, or 35 minutes after the first game of the day, Mississippi State and Florida.

It should be an evenly matched game based off of the national Top 25 rankings, as Missouri comes in at No. 15 and LSU at No. 16 in a lot of the same polls. Mizzou will be seeking some revenge, as LSU took two out of three in Columbia back in April, just one of three SEC series losses on the season for Missouri.

There will be plenty on the line this weekend for Mizzou, and regardless of what happens, the Tigers would seem to be in a pretty good spot to host a regional. Getting a top eight national seed potentially hosting through the Super Regionals could also be in play.

Mizzou’s RPI is currently 13th in country, while LSU sits at No. 5. “If we go on a run and we win out, I think we would put ourselves in a really good position to be in the Top 8,” Head Coach Larissa Anderson told KTGR’s Matt Michaels on the Inside Mizzou Athletics podcast.

For a full SEC Tournament preview with Michaels and Anderson, you can listen to the podcast here.

Meanwhile, D1Softball’s latest Field of 64 Projections have Missouri as the No. 10 national seed in Columbia with SEMO, Northwestern, and Illinois State in Mizzou’s regional.
