Top-ranked Razorbacks visit Diamond ‘Dogs this weekend

A three-game home baseball series against the top-ranked team in the country highlights another full weekend of action for Louisiana Tech’s spring sports.

BASEBALL: Lane Burroughs and the Bulldogs will host a three-game series against the unanimous No. 1 ranked team in the country this weekend as the Arkansas Razorbacks venture to JC Love Field at Pat Patterson Park.

The two teams will play tonight at 6 p.m., Saturday at 2 p.m. and Sunday at 1 p.m.

Due to capacity restrictions per state guidelines, single game tickets are not available for the weekend series against the Razorbacks. All three games will be televised live on Cox Sports TV and streamed on ESPN+, and fans can also listen to Dave Nitz provide the call on the LA Tech Sports Radio Network.

Arkansas is a perfect 10-0 with wins over No. 3 Texas Tech, No. 9 Texas and No. 10 TCU to open the season.

LA Tech (8-3) last played a No. 1 team in 2010, which is when the ‘Dogs dropped a pair of games at No. 1 Texas. Tech’s most recent victory over a top-five opponent came against the Razorbacks in 2007.
