Ernie Banks would be proud, as a rainout last night means Texas and Duke will play two today. Game One will be a seven inning affair beginning at 2 PM CST, and Game Two will be a nine inning contest to follow at 6 PM (or whenever makes sense depending on the timing of Game One).

This will be your open thread for our first look at the 2012 Longhorns.

You can see our preview here. Here are the probable pitching matchups:

Saturday, Feb. 18, 2012 - 2 p.m. Central
Texas: RHP Nathan Thornhill (3-0, 1.89 ERA in 2011)
Duke: RHP Marcus Stroman (3-4, 2.80 ERA in 2011)

Saturday, Feb. 18, 2012 - 6 p.m. Central
Texas: LHP Hoby Milner (7-4, 2.45 ERA in 2011)
Duke: LHP Trent Swart (Freshman)

Hook 'em!
