LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska is back in the NCAA baseball tournament for the first time since 2008.

The Cornhuskers (40-19) will play Friday in the Stillwater Regional against Cal State Fullerton (32-22) of the Big West Conference. Big 12 regular-season champion and host Oklahoma State (45-16) plays Binghamton (25-25) of the America East Conference.

Winners of the double-elimination regionals advance to the best-of-three super regionals.

Nebraska finished second in the Big Ten in the regular season and lost to Indiana in the conference tournament championship game for the second straight year.

The Huskers will be making their 13th appearance in the national tournament. They're 31-25 all-time in the tournament and reached the College World Series in 2001, 2002 and 2005.
