TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - Heavy rain and severe weather have forced the cancellation of the series opener between Alabama and Illinois-Chicago, scheduled for Friday, Feb. 27, at Sewell-Thomas Stadium.
The scheduled four-game series has now been reduced to three games because of weather and UIC's travel schedule on Sunday. The teams will play a doubleheader on Saturday, Feb. 28, at 1:05 p.m. (CST) and a single-game Sunday, March 1, at 12:35 p.m.
Fans should use "Game 7" tickets for admission to Saturday's double-header and "Game 8" tickets for admission to Sunday's game. All three games will be nine innings. Alabama will announce a make-up game to replace Friday's series opener at a later date. Fans should keep their "Game 6" tickets for admission to that game.
