The Bedlam winner will play the Texas-Texas Tech winner at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, while the loser will play the Texas-Tech Tech loser at 12:30 p.m. in an elimination game.

On the opposite side of the bracket, No. 3 Kansas faces No. 6 West Virginia at 9 a.m. followed by No. 2 TCU vs. No. 7 Baylor at 12:30 p.m.

The championship game will be played at 4:30 p.m. Sunday and televised on Fox Sports 1. The rest of the tournament will be on Fox College Sports.

The Cowboys were 7-2 against teams on their side of the bracket. OU was 2-9.

HUGHES IMPRESSED WITH TULSA

With a pair of sellouts at ONEOK Field, the decision to play two Bedlam games in Tulsa proved to be a success.

The average attendance at the games was 8,550 — more than 3,000 more fans than attended Thursday’s series opener in Oklahoma City.

Hughes enjoyed the time in Tulsa.

“I thought it was an awesome atmosphere,” Hughes said. “I thought it was great for both schools. It was great for college baseball and baseball, in general, for the state of Oklahoma. I thought it was special.”
