LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS 11)--For the first time since the NCAA adopted the current bracket format in 1999, the Kentucky Wildcats are in the super regionals.

The Wild Cats will head to Louisville to take on the Cardinals.

A two-hour rain delay pushed a back-and-forth affair with the NC State Wolfpack into Tuesday morning before the final strikeout.

The NCAA Tournament's Lexington Regional ended as a 10-5 win and a celebration for host Kentucky.

The Cats will face the Cardinals in a best-of-three series with play starting this Friday at Jim Patterson Stadium.
