Tigers won't have to face Wake unless it's in the Championship! And Burns won't be able to pitch again for Wake if that's the case. He's the best pitcher in the country and struck out a career-high 16 against the Tigers last week. Bakich and the Tigers were swept by Wake this season and last season.

The Tigers begin play on Thursday morning against Miami and will play Louisville on Friday. They took 2 of 3 on the road at both schools this season, including the first of their 3 shutouts at Miami.
