Kyle Russell homered for the second straight game to extend his UT single season record to 23. That mark is also tops in the NCAA in 2007. Meanwhile, Joseph Krebs survived a shaky two-run first inning to settle down nicely and give Texas 6 1/3 innings of four-hit baseball. Krebs improved to 5-0 on the season, while Randy Boone finished off the Cornhuskers for the second straight game, this time striking out three in 2 2/3 innings.
Texas has now won each of its six Big 12 series this season and sits atop the Big 12 standings at 14-4. The Longhorns next travel to Stillwater to take on second place Oklahomat State (10-5).
