FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) -  Hundreds of University of Arkansas students waited in line Wednesday (June 3) to get tickets to this weekend's NCAA Super Regional at Baum Stadium.

The U of A gave out 250 general admission tickets in the Hog Pen to students. Tickets were purchased for $15 at the Razorback Ticket Center starting at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Trent Childress, a junior at the university, waited in line all morning to get a ticket. He said he's excited to watch the Hogs play this weekend.

"That's part of the reason I wasn't about to miss the Super Regional at Baum Stadium," he said. "It's going to be one of the best atmospheres in all of the country, so I wasn't going to give that up for anything."

The Razorbacks will play No. 8 national seed Missouri State in a best-of-three series with the winner advancing to the College World Series in Omaha.

Game one will be Friday (June 5) at 3:30 p.m. and televised on ESPN2.
