“It wasn't an ideal situation to go on the road right after a home match, but that's what we had to do and maybe it will help toughen us up a little,” said UCO coach David James, whose club was coming off a 22-16 victory Thursday night over defending national champion Nebraska-Kearney. “We won seven matches with (six) bonus and that's always good. We're glad to get the win and are ready to move on to next week.”

Central Oklahoma will host Oklahoma City U. at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Hamilton Field House in Edmond.

A baseball card and memorabilia show is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at the Biltmore Hotel, 401 S. Meridian. Detroit Lions receiver and former Oklahoma star Ryan Broyles will sign autographs from 1 to 3 p.m. for $15. There is no admission charge to attend the show.
