The unseeded UL Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns take on the No. 1 seed Florida Gators at noon today in the Women's College World Series in Oklahoma City, Okla. If you're reading this, you're not likely at the game, so be sure to catch it on ESPN -- DirecTV Channel 73 or Cox Channel 35 (735 in high definition).

If the Cajuns pull off the upset, they'll play the winner of today's 2 p.m. Texas A&M and Virginia Tech game at 6 p.m. Friday. Should the Cajuns lose, they face the loser of that game at 11 a.m. Saturday.
