Texas vs. Rice -- 6:30 PM

In a tradition as old as the Irish, it's Texas traveling to Houston to take on Rice in Reckling Park. Rice enters the game 10-5 and ranked #7 nationwide. Sadly there's no TV for this one, but there's surely to be a crowd here taking in St Patty's day.

Some keys:

  • Austin Dicharry returns to the mound this time after a week off and will face the best competition he's seen all year. How will the freshman respond? 
  • On Sunday against Mizzou we saw freshman Morgan Mickam for the first time, scoring the game winner as a pinch runner. We saw Taylor Jungmann throw four near-perfect innings. We saw Brandon Loy pay the hot corner perfectly. We saw Jordan Etier score the tying run. In other words, the freshman are playing important roles.
  • The bats were asleep much of the weekend against Mizzou, can they be awoken against elite competition?
