BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The LSU softball team is heading west this weekend to play in the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic.

The No. 7 Tigers (9-1) will play against New Mexico State, Bethune-Cookman, Long Beach State, No. 6 UCLA and No. 17 Utah in Palm Springs, CA.

"I think it's a great tournament. It's an opportunity for us to play on the road and that's important," head coach Beth Torina said in a release. "We've been tested. We've played some great teams at home already this season, but this is a way to get the team used to playing on the road because it's something that's going to be a huge factor when we get into SEC play."
