LAFAYETTE — Coaches don't circle match-ups, but fans do and in the second weekend of the college softball season Louisiana softball fans are really excited.

Louisiana plays a two day, home-and-home series with none other than LSU.

The two teams didn't meet in 2019. The last meeting came in the 2018 Baton Rouge Regional. The Cajuns beat LSU in game one of the final, before the Tigers ended the Cajuns' season in game two.

The match-up is the first regular season meeting since, well, the records stop in 2004, so at least 16 years. Cajuns' head coach softball coach Gerry Glasco giving Tigers' head coach Beth Torina the credit for making this happen.

"We need the games, she doesn't. We need them here at UL. She wanted to play because she knows it's good for our community, and we want them because we know it's good for the community," Glasco said. "I think it will draw a lot of eyes from across the country on Louisiana softball, so I think it's good for our community and our sport."

Gerry Glasco sat down for an exclusive one-one-one Tuesday as part of a special KATC Sports Presents: Resilient. Part one of that two part special airs Sunday night on KATC's news at 10.
