The Big 12 Baseball Tournament will start Wednesday at the Bricktown Ballpark in Oklahoma City, and state college baseball fans will get Bedlam on day one.

The two teams just finished a three-game series over the weekend, with OSU taking two of three from the Sooners on their way to clinching the regular season Big 12 title.
The Cowboys will be trying to do something they’ve never done before, which is beat OU in the Big 12 Tournament.
