Big 12 Teams Make Up Half of Super Regional Hosts

Four Big 12 teams have moved on to the NCAA Super Regionals, and all four will host their best two of three series with a trip to Omaha for the College World Series at stake.
– Texas fought off former rival Texas A&M in their third meeting of the weekend at the Rice regional in Houston, 4-1 on Monday night.  The Longhorns will open with the University of Houston in Austin on Friday afternoon in the Supers.
– Texas Tech dropped a 2-1 10-inning decision at Miami in the resumption of a suspended game from Sunday.  But the Red Raiders bounced back to shut out the Hurricanes 4-0 in a winner-take all regional final later Monday.  Tech will now welcome College of Charleston to Lubbock in the Super Regionals, beginning Saturday afternoon.
– TCU and Pepperdine both won their regional on Sunday, and the Horned Frogs will host the Waves in Fort Worth for the Super Regionals starting on Saturday afternoon.
– Oklahoma State clinched their regional on Sunday with a win over Cal State-Fullerton, but had to wait until early this (Tuesday) morning whether they’d be travelling or hosting this weekend.  UC Irvine knocked off #1 national seed Oregon State 4-2 to earn the final Super Regional bid, and will go to Stillwater to face the Cowboys beginning Friday night.
