The Knights come into midweek action looking to rebound from a challenging weekend against Ole Miss that saw the Black and Gold drop two games in walk-off fashion. Junior outfielder Derrick Salberg, who is carrying a six-game hitting streak, leads the team in batting average (.386), runs (14), hits (17) and on-base percentage (.460).

Tuesday's contest versus the Wildcats will be available via UCF All-Access, while Wednesday night's home affair will be broadcast on AM 740 The Game with Marc Daniels on the call.
