BATON ROUGE -- - The #1 LSU Tiger Baseball team travels to Austin, Tx., this weekend to take on the 18th-ranked Texas Longhorns.
Geaux Nation's Morgan Beard is following the team for the spotlight series from Friday through Sunday.
The showdown is the first between the two teams in Austin since 1998. Texas leads the all-time series 22-12-1 coming into the three-game set.
Last year, the 'Horns came to Baton Rouge for the two programs' first meeting since the 2009 College World Series Finals.
LSU won the '09 series and National Championship, and the Tigers took two of three games in Baton Rouge last year vs UT.
