NCAA Baseball 2012: No. 2 Baylor Takes Perfect Big 12 Record To Oklahoma This Weekend

The No. 2 Baylor Bears have clinched the Big 12 title and look to burnish their national resume this weekend against Oklahoma.

The No. 2 Baylor Bears (39-8, 18-0) are on the road this weekend in Norman, Oklahoma, playing the Sooners (30-18, 10-10) in a three-game Big 12 series. After rain washed out Friday night's contest, the Bears play two beginning at 2 p.m. CDT Saturday and finish off the trip at 1 p.m. Sunday.

Baylor is coming off a ten-day break for finals and then a 3-0 win over Texas State on Tuesday, and is playing its first Big 12 games in nearly three weeks since sweeping No. 10 Texas A&M. With two Big 12 series to play, the Bears have already clinched the second outright conference title in school history, but they're looking to improve their resume in hopes of locking down a national seed, and so ensure themselves home field through the second-round Super Regionals of the NCAA championship.

Southpaw Josh Turley (7-0, 1.74) is slated to start Game One for Baylor against fellow lefty Jordan John (8-5, 2.45). Trent Blank (9-0, 2.43) starts against Oklahoma's Jonathan Gray (5-4, 4.06) in the twilight game.

The 2 p.m. Saturday game is scheduled for broadcast on Fox Sports Southwest, and the Sunday game will be televised on Fox College Sports Central. All three games will be available on ESPN Radio 1660 Waco, called by Tom Barfield and Lark Smith.
