With just one win this weekend against Texas A&M, the Longhorns will secure at least a tie for the 2007 Big 12 championship. Two or three wins and they'll win it outright...
#7 Texas (39-14, 18-6) vs #9 Texas A&M (40-12, 13-10)
The three game series begins tonight in College Station at 6:30 p.m., then concludes in Austin with a game on Saturday and Sunday. James Russell (8-3, 3.53) will try to extend Texas five-game winning streak over the Aggies as tonight's starter, lining up opposite A&M's Kyle Nicholson (11-1, 1.73).
On Saturday, Adrian Alaniz (12-2, 2.37), who was named this week a semifinalist for the Roger Clemens Award (presented annually to college baseball's top pitcher), will take the mound for the 'Horns. Austin Wood will take the mound on Sunday for the Longhorns.
Joining Alaniz on the award short lists is Kyle Russell, who was named a semifinalist for the Dick Howser trophy.
This weekend's series with Texas A&M will be broadcast in Austin and San Antonio on Fox Sports Southwest.
