LSU opens the College World Series on Saturday night by playing Florida State at 7 p.m. CT at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, NE. The game will be televised on ESPN.

On the mound for the Tigers will be Alex Lange who is 4-0 in his last five starts with a 2.21 ERA.

This is LSU's 18th trip to the College World Series. Per LSUSports.net:

“Just being around all of the other programs that are here is such an honor, and I'm glad that we were able to get to Omaha,” said LSU coach Paul Mainieri, who has directed the Tigers to the CWS five times in the past 10 seasons. “Our team has been playing pretty good baseball for the last several weeks. Any time we get a team here, there's a great deal of satisfaction. We're looking forward to facing Florida State and coach Mike Martin, who is one of legends in the college game. They have a tremendous ball club, and we're excited for the challenge of meeting them.”

Florida State is in the College World Series for the 23rd time, and for the 16th time under Martin's leadership. Saturday's game marks the first meeting between LSU and FSU since the semifinal round of the 2000 CWS, when LSU posted a 6-3 win over Seminoles and went on to defeat Stanford in the CWS championship game.
