OMAHA, Neb. (WBRC) - Auburn’s College World Series game against Louisville will resume Wednesday at 11:03 a.m CT.

The Tigers trail Louisville 4-1 entering the top of the fifth inning in an elimination game in the College World Series.

The game was delayed at 2:55 p.m. After a delay or nearly four-and-a-half hours, with more rain in the forecast, the decision was made not to attempt resuming play Tuesday evening.

Tickets for Tuesday’s game will be valid for Wednesday’s resumption.

We caught up with Auburn Head Coach Butch Thompson before the Tigers left for their hotel. His message to the team: “You know how important the game is, you know how excited we are to be here. We will get back, we know we have two to three hours at the hotel and then we will get an update. You know it’s baseball, sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes it rains."
