Arkansas to play Florida State in Super Regional
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - When Arkansas went to the College World Series in 2004, the Razorbacks beat Florida State to get there. Arkansas will have to go through the Seminoles again to reach the tournament this year.
Arkansas had a dismal end to the regular season, winning only 1 of their last nine games. But the Razorbacks picked up their level of play in the Southeastern Conference tournament and stayed in the winner's bracket as they won the regional at Oklahoma.
The Seminoles (45-16) enter the super regional with some momentum, too. They beat Ohio State 37-6 on Sunday while the Razorbacks (37-22) were dismissing the Sooners 11-0.
Florida State will host the regional, which starts Friday.
