AUSTIN -- The Texas baseball program's 59th appearance in the NCAA Tournament will begin at Disch-Falk Field against Texas Southern on Friday in the Austin Regional.
Saturday's winners and losers bracket games of the 4-team double-elimination regional tournament may include a renewal of a rivalry -- a rivalry both schools deny. The Longhorns and Aggies have met on the baseball field since Texas A&M left the Big 12 for the SEC. In fact, the two met in College Station back in April. The Aggies won, 6-5.
The Longhorns watched the NCAA Selection Show from their locker room at Disch-Falk Field this morning.
When the field of 64 and the Austin Regional included Texas A&M, the Longhorns were elated.
This is the schedule for the Austin Regional on Friday:
- Second seed Indiana vs. third seed Texas A&M, 4:00 p.m. CST
- First seed Texas vs. fourth seed Texas Southern, 8:00 p.m. CST
The winner of the Austin Regional will face the winner of the Oxford Regional on the campus of Ole Miss University.
