Despite missing out on a coveted Top 8 seed and the ability to host a super regional series should they advance, Kentucky now knows what teams will be in their bracket as regional play opens this Friday at Cliff Hagan Stadium in Lexington.

The Wildcats (39-20) will open with Ohio University (31-26) on Friday at 12pm. The 7pm will be NC State (34-23) vs Indiana (33-22-2). Regional play is a double elimination format.

Should UK advance to the Super Regional there is a possibility they would travel to Louisville to face the Cardinals with a trip to Omaha for the College World Series on the line.

No. 1 Oregon State
No. 2 North Carolina
No. 3 Florida
No. 4 LSU
