LSU, ranked inside the top 10 by most preseason polls, begins the season Feb. 14 with a home game against New Orleans.

The Tigers lost more than half of their pitching staff and four position players from a team that finished 57-11 and advanced to the College World Series in Omaha. They return two preseason All-Americans in ace Aaron Nola and shortstop Alex Bregman.
