Huskers vs. Sooners: Baseball Edition

Nebraska and Oklahoma are one of the storied rivalries in all of sports. Well, if you're talking about football, and are asking anyone over the age of 35, or those that recall the glory days of the Big Eight.

In baseball, they're just two of the perennially stronger teams in the Big 12. This weekend, they'll meet to decide, once and for all, which is the better middle-of-the-pack team in the Big 12 this season. Is it Oklahoma, who comes into the series ranked as high as No. 23 nationally, sporting a 24-11 overall record with a 4-5 mark in conference? Or is it Nebraska, winners of one straight Big 12 series, owners of a 20-13 (5-7) record?

Here are the details for your weekend of following the disappointing 'Skers:
