Severe rain projected in the Batou Rouge area has forced Southern University baseball to alter this weekend's series against Selma.

The Jaguars will open the Selma series Saturday at Lee-Hine with a 3 p.m. first pitch. The series concludes Sunday with a noon doubleheader. Each game on Sunday will be seven innings in length.

Southern returns to Southwestern Athletic Conference play on March 25 when the Jaguars host Arkansas Pine Bluff in a 3-game series starting Friday at 6 p.m.
