KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee softball now knows the date and time of their NCAA Tournament Super Regional games against Texas this weekend.

Game two of the series is scheduled for May 27 at 3 p.m. Game three, if necessary, would be played on May 28.

Tennessee advanced to the Super Regional after winning three of three games in the Regional. They won in five-inning mercy rule games against Northern Kentucky and Indiana. They beat the Hoosiers again in the Regional Final to advance to the Super Regional.

Tennessee and Texas were supposed to play earlier this season back in February at the NFCA Leadoff Classic in Clearwater, Fla. However, the game was canceled due to weather.
