Three games will be played Saturday, with the regional championship determined on Sunday.

"We played them (Fordham) several years ago", said Torina.

Game 1: Missouri vs. Tulsa, 3:30 p.m. Joining those two teams in the double elimination style quartet are Boston and Oklahoma.

UCLA is the No. 3 overall seed.

The Bulldogs, who were selected as a No. 7 seed in the tournament, will face Harvard on Friday at 2:30 p.m. and the victor of Cal-Northwestern should they advance.

Catalan lawmakers set to elect new hardline leader Quim Torra
He was handpicked as a candidate by deposed leader Carles Puigdemont . "From October 27, he will be able to call new elections". Polls show that the wealthy region's 7.5 million residents are evenly divided on whether Catalonia should secede from Spain.

However, the difficulties of playing SEC foes has set Mississippi State up for a solid shot in the NCAA Tournament.

The super regionals will be played May 24-27 on eight campus sites, with eight best-of-three matchups. In the fall of 2014, the stadium received a $4.6 million renovation, which included the installation of field turf throughout the field, along with new lights and scoreboard. Five players earned all-conference honors, including senior Alysha Everett who leads the team with a.304 batting average and 52 hits. The Bobcats lost to Kentucky, the host school, and DePaul. All 13 SEC teams made the 64-team NCAA Tournament for a second consecutive season.

The strength of the Tigers' schedule, in spite of a conference mark more than 10 games below.500, established the program just enough to earn the committee's recognition.

The NCAA Tournament committee certainly left room for some second guessing.

The first part of that is clear as it was announced that the Bruins are the #3 ranked team in the NCAA Softball Bracket and will host Sacramento State, Texas State and Cal State Fullerton. United Kingdom will welcome in Michigan, Notre Dame and Illinois-Chicago for the regionals. It will be available for live stream online at ESPN3.
