CHAPEL HILL, N.C (WSFA) - The Super Regional times for the upcoming series between North Carolina and Auburn have been announced. Auburn will travel to No. 14 national seed North Carolina with the series beginning Saturday.

The quest to Omaha continues for the Tigers beginning at 11 a.m. Central Standard Time Saturday morning. Game 2 will be played Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m. Central Standard Time and then, if necessary, Game 3 would be Monday at noon Central Standard Time.
