Jessie Harper (19) trots home after the first of her three homers in the UA’s 12-3 win over Auburn. She has an NCAA-best 28 home runs this season.

Arizona's Super Regional softball series against Ole Miss will start on Friday at Hillenbrand Stadium, the school announced. First pitch is scheduled for 4 p.m., and the game will air on ESPNU. 

The best-of-three series will continue Saturday at 5 p.m. with a game shown on ESPN2; a winner-take-all Game 3, if necessary, will start at 5 p.m. Sunday and be shown on ESPNU. The winner of the weekend series will advance to next week's Women's College World Series, played in Oklahoma City. 

The sixth-ranked Wildcats advanced somewhat easily through a Tucson Regional that included Auburn, Colorado State and Harvard. Eleventh-ranked Ole Miss had a harder time; the Rebels lost once in the the double-elimination tournament, then had to win three win-or-go-home games. Sunday's 5-4 win over Louisiana-Lafayette came after the team trailed 4-3 in the seventh inning.
