Both ULL and LSU received top 8 national seeds, meaning that if they win the regionals they will host this weekend, they would host Super Regionals the following weekend.
The eight winners of the Super Regionals will advance to the College World Series.
ULL won the Sun Belt Conference tournament and more than 50 games. The Ragin Cajuns have been ranked as high as number 1 this year. They grabbed the 6th overall seed.
Red-hot LSU, which won the SEC tournament championship by dominating opponents 31-4 in four games, got the 8th seed after just a few weeks ago it was wondered whether they would even host a regional.
The Tigers, who will host a regional for the 22nd time, will open Friday at 2 pm facing SLU. The night game will be Bryant and Houston.
ULL will host Jackson State at 6 pm Friday. In the other matchup, at 1 pm, San Diego State will face Mississippi State.
