AUSTIN (KXAN) — Texas Longhorns baseball opens its 60th NCAA Tournament against Southern University Friday in the Austin regional.

The Longhorns earned the No. 2 national seed for the tournament after building a 42-15 record and winning a share of the Big 12 regular season championship. By virtue of its strong seed, Texas has the opportunity to host the regional (and potentially the super regional) at UFCU Disch-Falk Field. This is Texas’ 27th time as regional host.

Texas will welcome Southern, Arizona State and Fairfield University to Austin for the double-elimination tournament. No. 2 seed Arizona State and No. 3 seed Fairfield will play in the other opening game.

Southern entered the SWAC post season tournament with a 15-27 record, but went 5-1 including a 7-6 championship game win over Jackson State to earn the automatic bid.

The Texas regional winner will meet the Gainesville, Florida regional. Host Florida (38-20) is the No. 15 overall seed and open regional play against South Florida (28-27), Miami (32-19) will take on South Alabama (33-20) in the other regional opener in Gainesville.
