COLLEGE STATION, Texas - ESPN has moved Friday's opening round of the NCAA Softball College Station Regional back two hours into primetime. The games will still air on ESPN2 and no other part of the regional schedule has been affected.
Baylor and Arizona will now face of in a 4:30 p.m. match-up, and No. 16 seed A&M will play Penn at 7 p.m. All times are listed as Central.
One win away from an eighth 40-season under Head Coach Jo Evans, the Aggies received an at-large bid to their 24th-overall and 12th-straight NCAA Tournament after a 39-15 season in A&M’s first year in the Southeastern Conference (SEC). Penn (30-18) was an automatic qualifier in the team’s first-ever postseason appearance after winning the Ivy League Tournament. Baylor (39-15, Big 12) and Arizona (32-24, Pac-12) were both at-large bids.
Gates will open one hour prior to first pitch, at 3:30 p.m. Tickets are available here. To learn more about Texas A&M softball, log on to AggieAthletics.com and follow @AggieSoftball on Twitter.
