The Louisville baseball team will begin the road back to Omaha on Friday night as the NCAA Tournament's No. 3 overall seed. It's just the second time the Cards have earned a national seed in the big dance, as U of L was the tournament's No. 7 overall seed back in 2010.

Dan McDonnell and company will begin postseason play against Ohio Valley champion Morehead State Friday at  6 p.m. The region's No. 2 seed, Bradley (35-19), and third-seeded Michigan (37-23) will meet in the regional's first game on Friday at 2 p.m.

The winner of the Louisville regional will advance to face the winner of the Fullerton regional in the best-of-3 supers. In addition to the host Titans, Arizona State, Clemson and Pepperdine are also headed to Fullerton for the weekend. The Cardinals and Titans met in the super regionals back in 2009, with Fullerton easily advancing to the College World Series.
