No. 3 Sooners Set To Face No. 6 Texas In Big 12 Tournament

The Oklahoma Sooners closed out the regular season with two consecutive losses to Oklahoma State in the Bedlam Series. However, they’ll now turn their focus to the double-elimination format of the Big 12 Tournament. Putting one rival in the rearview mirror OU now finds themselves paired against another bitter rival.

Taking home the No. 3 Seed behind a 12-11 record, the Sooners have been matched up against the No. 6 Seeded Texas Longhorns in a night cap on day one. Scheduled for Wednesday, May 24th, the first pitch is to be thrown at 7:30 PM. The two programs have not met in the post-season since 2008. Yet, it’s the Longhorns who hold a 4-1 post-season advantage over the Sooners.

Challenging OU during the regular season, Texas also holds a regular season advantage taking the series (2-1) in Austin this year. Now, it’s the Sooners who will play closer to home in Oklahoma City looking for a different outcome.

Moving forward to day two, Oklahoma will play either TCU or Kansas on Thursday.
