The Gophers softball team didn't face much adversity Friday. They cruised past Louisiana Tech with a mercy-rule induced 11-3 win in their NCAA Tournament opener.

Weather permitting, they will face off against the Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday in their second game.

The game's start time has already been moved up a few hours to 11:30 a.m. CT in an effort to get ahead of the rain.

Stay tuned for any potential scheduling changes to Saturday's match-up with Alabama.
