Midweek Open Thread: Texas Takes on Dallas Baptist

Sam Stafford returns to the round tonight at 6 PM at UFCUDFF a week after going seven hitless innings. The Dallas Baptist Patriots are 20-11 against the nation's 198th ranked schedule according to Boyd's World. DBU does have wins over Oklahoma State and TCU, and they enter the game against Texas fresh off of outscoring Arkansas-Pine Bluff (one of the nation's worst teams) 64-5 over a four game set.

Jared Stafford will get the start against Texas's Stafford (no known relation). Stafford is DBU's best pitcher and is certainly capable of shutting down an improving Texas offense. Video on TexasSports, this can be your open thread.
