NR (Coaches Poll)
Welcome to the Crimson and Cream Machine as the Oklahoma Sooners get set to start a weekend series against the Nebraska Cornhuskers in Lincoln. The Sooners caught a break last weekend with a rain out helping them to escape the weekend match up with the Baylor Bears still undefeated in conference play. The #12 ranked Sooners look to get a series win in Lincoln as they continue to move up the polls.
No. 12 Oklahoma (18-2) has won 13 of their last 14 games and returns to the road for a three-game series at Nebraska (11-9, 1-2) this weekend ... The Huskers are a perfect 7-0 at home after topping Northern Colorado in a two-game set earlier this week ... OU is 9-2 away from home this year and this series marks the fourth road trip in the first six weekends of the season.
OU sits atop the Big 12 standings and is off to its best start under Sunny Golloway and best since 1985. The Sooners are ranked as high as No. 12 this week by the USA Today/ESPN Coaches' poll.
Nebraska returns 18 letterwinners from the 2009 team that was 25-28-1 overall (8-19, 10th in Big 12) ... The Huskers opened Big 12 play last weekend in Austin, Texas and suffered a 2-1 series defeat, including a three-run walk-off homer by Texas on Friday.
Friday - RHP Casey Hauptman (1-2, 2.48) | Saturday - RHP Michael Mariot (2-2, 4.50) | Sunday - RHP Tom Lemke (3-1, 4.50)
