The super regional between Southern Miss and Tennessee will be in Hattiesburg, according to an announcement by the NCAA Tuesday morning.

The Golden Eagles, who won the regional tournament at Auburn as a No. 2 seed, will play Tennessee, who also won as a No. 2 see in the Clemson Regional.

Because both USM and Tennessee were No. 2 seeds, the NCAA had to choose between the two teams as to where the Super Regional would be played. The NCAA announced USM and Hattiesburg as its choice.
