Sophomore righty Aaron Nola will start opening night for LSU on Feb. 15 when the Tigers welcome Maryland to Alex Box Stadium, coach Paul Mainieri announced Wednesday.

Mainieri said junior right hander Ryan Eades will start the Saturday game and he has yet to make a decision for the Sunday contest, but said he plans to announce it sometime next week.

"The Nola game one and Eades game two will definitely go through the first two weeks," Mainieri said. "Then, we'll reassess it."

Mainieri added the rotation is not set in stone, and didn't rule out flipping Nola and Eades, but only under one condition.

"I may flip-flop he and Nola by the third weekend if [Eades] has earned it," Mainieri said. "He won't earn it because Nola falters, he'll earn it because of his performance."
