For the second consecutive year, the Super Regional match-up between Rice and Texas A&M has been sold out in advance of the start of the series.
A year ago, the Owls swept two straight games from the Aggies at Reckling Park.
This time around, the Ags come into the series swinging the hot bats.
A&M scored 53 runs in its four games at the College Station Regional.
The 2008 Houston (Rice) Super Regional will get underway on Saturday, with first pitch set for 2:07 p.m. The second game of the series is set for a 6:07 first pitch on Sunday. If a third game is needed to decide who will advance to Omaha for the College World Series, it will be on Monday, but game time is to be determined.
