STILLWATER – Already this season, Oklahoma State has piled up a list of “first since” accomplishments.

First regular season conference title since 1996.

First 48-win season since 1994.

First home regional championship since 1993.

Now there’s this: first time as Super Regional host since… ever.

When Oregon State, this NCAA Tournament’s No. 1 national seed, lost to Cal Irvine 4-2 late Monday night, the Cowboys were assured of hosting the next round – a best-of-three series against Irvine – this weekend.

Times are set for 8:30 p.m. Friday, 9 pm. Saturday and 8 p.m. Sunday, if necessary. All games will be televised by ESPNU.

Tickets go on sale today at noon through the OSU ticket office or online at www.okstate.com/tickets. All-session tickets cost $30. Single-session tickets will go on sale the day of each game, two hours prior to game time, for $15.

OSU has played in two Super Regional rounds previously, at Baylor in 1999 and at Louisville in 2007.
