WHAT TO WATCH FOR

The biggest series of the weekend for the SEC will be taking place in Lexington. The sixth-ranked Kentucky Wildcats are going to play host to the third-ranked Texas Tech Red Raiders. This Top 10 showdown will certainly have a lot of early season bragging rights on the line. Kentucky has the most potent offense in the SEC so far this season. They lead the conference in batting average (.335), runs scored (131), doubles (42) and home runs (28). They also lead in SLG (.609) and currently sit second in OBP (.448) to the Auburn Tigers.

They will be challenged though by Texas Tech. The Red Raiders lead the Big 12 in several offensive categories, as well. They are 1st in batting average (.328), OBP (.46), SLG (.533) and runs scored (125, 34 runs higher than second-place Kansas State). They are tied for 1st in doubles (28) and are second in home runs (16) to West Virginia’s 17. The names to watch for Texas Tech are Grant Little, Gabe Holt and Cameron Warren. They will have to face Davis Martin on Friday, who has been lights out to start the year.

Vanderbilt has an enticing trip out west after their trek to Houston didn’t go so well. They started the week with a loss to Long Beach State, but things are only about to get tougher. They have matchups scheduled against 13th-ranked UCLA and 12th-ranked TCU as part of the Dodger Stadium Classic. Their matchup against USC will also be one to watch, as well. The Commodores boast a pretty capable offense so far, although their pitching is in the middle of the pack of the SEC in the early goings. We’ll see how they fare out west.
