Sooners face pivotal series against Baylor

Published: April 24, 2009

d this Longhorns squad has established itself as the class of the Big 12, which again carries a hefty reputation nationally.

Because of that rep, the Big 12 figures to land at least two regional sites. Texas, barring a collapse, gets one. After the ’Horns, OU, Texas A&M and Baylor are all positioning themselves for the right to open the postseason at home, from where the Road to Omaha runs much smoother.

The Sooners still dictate their own path. They’re at Baylor this weekend and close the conference schedule at home against A&M, with series against Kansas and Oklahoma State wedged in between.

The path could become much clearer by Sunday evening.

"It’s a huge weekend,” Golloway admitted. "Every Big 12 weekend is huge and we understand that. But coming off a weekend where you haven’t played well or didn’t have success, I think you put a little more emphasis on it.”
