Gameday Open Thread (1) Texas Tech vs (5) Oklahoma

Texas Tech takes on Oklahoma to stay alive in the Big XII Tournament. Come discuss the game with us!

NCAA Baseball: College World Series-Mississippi vs Texas Tech Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

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.


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
