It's the end of May, so Arizona Wildcats softball is in a Super Regional this weekend.

Once again, they'll be travelling to SEC country to take on the Auburn Tigers. The best-of-three action begins on Saturday. Here are the game times and various channels they'll be on:

GAME ONE

Saturday, 3:30 PM PT, ESPN2

GAME TWO

Sunday, 11 AM PT, ESPN

GAME THREE (if necessary)

Sunday, 2 PM PT, ESPNU


Tiffany Greene and former Wildcat Jenny Dalton-Hill will be on the call. Dalton-Hill holds the Arizona record in career runs scored (291), RBI (328), and walks (178) You can also stream these games on Watch ESPN and the ESPN app.


If Arizona were to advance out of this Super Regional, they would be the first team ever to win SEC-hosted Regionals and Super Regionals. They would also become just the second team ever to win the first two weekends of the NCAA Tournament on the road to advance to the Women's College World Series.

Arizona is 0-8 in their past four Super Regional appearances. The Cats will be looking to make their first WCWS since 2010.

The main storyline of the weekend other than a WCWS appearance being on the line is Mike Candrea going up against former ASU coach Clint Myers, who is now the head coach at Auburn. Myers won two NCAA Championships during his tenure in Tempe. He also succeed Candrea at Central Arizona College back in 1987. So the two have a long history.

You can watch Candrea address his relationship with Myers, preview the weekend, and talk about his team in this video from Wednesday:
