Game 1: Texas (38-20) vs. Louisiana (40-22) · 2 p.m. ET Friday · Longhorn Network
Game 2: Miami (40-19) vs. Maine (32-19) · 7 p.m. ET Friday · ESPN+
The Maine Black Bears finished top-50 in on-base percentage and homers per nine en route to an America East title. Now, they'll head to Alex Rodriguez Park, where Miami lit up the scoreboard in ACC play.
The Hurricanes just missed out on a Super Regional seed, as the winner of this Regional will be paired up with the Stanford Regional winner. Texas and Louisiana round out a field that is by far the best from a defensive fielding perspective.

Colin Fitzgerald will get the nod for Maine in the opener, bringing a sub-4.5 ERA but an eye-popping FIP nearly two runs higher. Miami will counter with Gage Ziehl for a projection at -190 and a total of 13.8 runs.
Texas has the option to throw Lucas Gordon or Lebarron Johnson Jr. against usual opening starter Jackson Nezuh for the Ragin’ Cajuns. Nezuh doesn't have numbers that project well for a matchup against the Longhorns offense, as the Florida State transfer supports a 6.14 ERA.
No matter who Texas throws in the first game, the Longhorns are playable to -200 in the opener.
If the winners' bracket consists of Texas and Miami, there's an expectation that the Horns will be favored over Alejandro Rosario or Ronaldo Gallo.
The true series price for Texas is +140, giving value to the current market number of +170 as of this writing.
- Game 1: Texas -175
- Game 2: Miami vs. Maine Over 13.5 or Better
- Series: Texas +170
