Sunny Golloway has yet to announce starters for the Sooners but New Mexico looks to throw a pair of right-handed seniors at Oklahoma. Casey Collins is tabbed as the Tuesday starter. He carries a 1-1 record into the game with a 5.60 ERA. In 17.2 innings of work this season he has fanned 13 batters. Wednesday evening the Aggies will throw Adam Mott who is 2-1 on the season with a 4.56 ERA. He had struck out 23 batters, this season, during his 25.2 innings of work.

New Mexico State is 8-8 on the season but also carries a 2-5 record in road games. They are led from the plate by Tanner Rust who is batting .339 with six RBI and a team-high 27 total bases. Robert Lecount has knocked in a team-high 18 RBI and is one of four players to have hit two home runs this season. As a team the Aggies are batting .263 through sixteen games.

Matt Oberste continues to keep his batting average above .400 and has hit team highs in home runs (5), RBI (24), and total bases (49). He is joined by Max White (.317) and Hector Lorenzana (.311) as players who are batting .300 or better. As a team the Soones are batting .285 through sixteen games.

Oklahoma's starting pitchers are most likely not going to be identified until the lineup cards come put but Corey Copping, Kyle Hayes and Ethan Carnes are likely candidates.
