From RollTide.com:

Fresh off its 2010 Atlanta Regional Championship, Alabama remains on the road to face the Clemson Tigers in the 2010 NCAA Super Regional at Doug Kingsmore Stadium in Clemson, S.C. The best-of-three series will be played Saturday, June 12 (5 p.m., CDT), Sunday, June 13 (6 p.m., CDT) and Monday, June 14 (TBA). The series opener will be televised by ESPNU, while games two and three will be shown on ESPN 2, with Mark Neely (play-by-play) and Ben McDonald (analyst) describing the action. The Alabama-Clemson winner will advance to the 2010 College World Series in Omaha, Neb., and will take on the Arizona State-Arkansas Super Regional winner in a first-round game at historic Johnny Rosenblatt Stadium. Alabama (41-23) defeated national No. 8 seed Georgia Tech 10-8 on Monday, June 7, to capture the NCAA Atlanta Regional. 

Alabama enters the Super Regional having won 12 of its last 14 games. Clemson (41-22) advanced to the Super Regional after winning the 2010 Auburn (Ala.) Regional. The Tigers posted a 3-1 record and defeated Southern Miss and Auburn (twice). After losing to Auburn in game six, Clemson bounced back with 13-7 win in the championship game to advance to play the Crimson Tide this weekend.

On the mound for the Tide tonight will be Jimmy Nelson (8-3, 3.92 ERA) and he will be going against Casey Harman (7-2, 3.95 ERA). From the sound of things, this is a pretty big ballpark... 400 in dead center, 370 in the alleys, 320 to left, and 330 to right.

In any event, you can watch the game online if your ISP allows you access to ESPN3.com, but if not you'll have to follow it online or on the radio. Chime in here with all of your thoughts.
