To cap the Phillips 66 Big 12 Baseball Championship during this holiday weekend, head coach David Pierce and the five-seed Texas baseball will take on the three-seed Oklahoma Sooners on May 29. Texas can win their first Big 12 Tournament crown since 2015. This would also be the first Big 12 title for the tournament or the regular season since last season.
Pierce and the Longhorns won the Big 12 regular season title last year and in 2018.
Texas comes into this de facto Red River Rivalry game to cap the Big 12 Tournament sporting a record of 42-18 (14-10 Big 12) following their win over the four-seed Oklahoma State Cowboys on the evening of May 28 by the final score of 9-2. Texas beat Oklahoma State twice in three tries in games between these two teams in the Big 12 Tournament.
Meanwhile, Oklahoma comes into this Red River finale for the Big 12 Tournament sporting a record of 36-20 (15-9 Big 12) following their win over the Kansas State Wildcats to stay undefeated up to this point of the festivities in Arlington, TX. Oklahoma has beat the West Virginia Mountaineers, Texas Tech Red Raiders, and Kansas State in their three games of the Big 12 Tournament thus far.
Here’s a look at the betting odds, TV/streaming information, and game prediction as Texas takes on Oklahoma in the finale of the Big 12 Tournament. The first pitch time between Texas and Oklahoma on May 29 is set for 5 p.m. CT at Globe Life Field in Arlington, TX.

Texas baseball vs. Oklahoma pick
It looks like there’s a good chance that Pierce and the Longhorns could be hosting a Regional in Austin at this point. Texas has likely done enough to host a Regional at this point, as they currently rank No. 12 in the live RPI.
We don’t know yet who will be starting for the Longhorns in this Big 12 Tournament finale on May 29. It could be either the stud redshirt sophomore ace Pete Hansen or the rapidly improving and clutch Lucas Gordon. But Pierce could opt to work the rest of the staff and save Gordon and Hansen for regionals and go with another pitcher in this meeting with the Sooners.
That will leave a lot of the fate of this game in the hands of the Texas bats. Texas will need the likes of superstar Ivan Melendez and the talented middle infielder Trey Faltine to spark the offense to gain an edge on the rival Sooners.
Melendez isn’t having the greatest Big 12 Tournament by his usual standard. But that doesn’t mean he’s not effective thus far.
He is currently going through one of his worst offensive stretches of the season. We did finally see Melendez breakthrough, though, against the Pokes on the evening of May 28. He had two hits (including his first of the Big 12 Tournament) and one run batted in in the win over Oklahoma State to get the Longhorns to the final game.sky247
