Cal begins the four-team, three-day event with the opening game on Friday at 12:30 p.m. PT on ESPN+ vs. Southern Illinois, the Missouri Valley Conference champions. The Salukis enter the tournament 42-9 overall.

LSU and Jackson State will follow with game two at 3 p.m. PT on Friday on the SEC Network. 

The Bears finished the season 36-17 (9-13 Pac-12) and lost in the quarterfinals of the conference tournament to host Stanford. Powered by one of the most explosive offenses in the country, Cal led the conference in home runs (77), doubles (83) and extra-base hits (164).

Cal last advanced to an NCAA Super Regional in 2012, the same year it made its most recent appearance in the Women’s College World Series.
