PREVIEW

Texas Tech finished the season with the same conference record as TCU, but earned the top seed in the tournament thanks to a 2-1 series victory over the Horned Frogs last month.

The Red Raiders come in winners of nine of their last 11 games. They’re going to be a regional host site this year and could be as high as the No. 3 seed.

OSU comes into the tournament riding high on a two-game sweep of Oklahoma. Though they lost six straight before hand.

If OSU wants to make an NCAA Regional for the fifth year in a row their going to have to pull a Major League and win the whole damn thing.

The Cowboys stole two games from the Red Raiders earlier this season, so a win today isn’t out of the question.
