We were all just waiting on the formal announcement.
After the pitching performance Oklahoma junior Dane Acker produced on Sunday he was a lock to be honored with a weekly conference award on Monday. As it turns out, he was given two awards.
Acker was named the Big 12’s Pitcher of the Week as well as the Newcomer of the Week for his completed game no-hitter he pitched against #11 LSU on Sunday. Striking out 11 batters and walking just one, it was OU’s first individual nine-inning no-hitter since 1989 and it was the 11th individual no-hitter in Big 12 history, and first since 2017.
The Sooners are 9-3 on the season.
