FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas will get an opponent they’ve already taken two out of three from at Baum Stadium with South Carolina coming to town for the NCAA Super Regional.
Arkansas will host South Carolina in the NCAA Fayetteville Super Regional after the Gamecocks defeated North Carolina-Wilmington 8-4 on Monday in the championship of the regional in Greenville, N.C.
South Carolina also had regional wins over Ohio State and No. 12 seed East Carolina. Arkansas, the No. 5 national seed, won its home regional with wins over Oral Roberts, Southern Miss and Dallas Baptist.
The start dates and times for the super regional at Baum Stadium will not be finalized until later today or early Tuesday. The best-of-three super regional will begin either Friday or Saturday.
Arkansas is 3-1 against South Carolina this season. The Razorbacks won two of three games over the Gamecocks in Fayetteville in April, and also won 13-8 at the SEC Tournament in Hoover, Alabama, on May 23.
“These guys have been pounding the ball and winning at home and winning on the road,” Arkansas coach Dave Van Horn said of South Carolina following the win in Hoover. “They’re a dangerous team.”
South Carolina (36-24) was the last visiting team to win a game at Baum Stadium, 3-2 on April 12. The Razorbacks failed to score four times with the bases loaded that night.
