It's do or die time for the Red Raiders in the Big XII Tournament. Following a loss to West Virginia, we find ourselves in the loser's bracket, playing for our lives against Oklahoma. The Sooners have a solid baseball team, and it will be a challenge for Texas Tech to peel one off of this ball club. We'll need big games from our big names like Stephen Smith, Eric Gutierrez, and Tyler Floyd.
GAMETIME: 3:15 PM CST
HOW TO WATCH: Fox Sports Southwest will have the game going. If you can't get to a TV, Double T 97.3 or a form of internet radio will have the game. I'll update this post if I find something.
PREVIEW: The last time the Red Raiders and the Sooners met, we swept them. Oklahoma looks to have found their proverbial groove in a win over last seeded Kansas State. Texas Tech will have to hit the ball extremely well at the beginning of the game and not look back. We've been challenged with a comeback in the past two games of the Big XII Tournament, and one of those didn't end with a win. A fast start that forces Oklahoma to play from behind should culminate in a Red Raider victory
