Previewing a Pivotal Week

This is a big week for Sooner Nation, so Sooners Illustrated provides you with the two biggest events to look forward to this week.

1. OU spring game—At 1 p.m. Saturday, the Legends Flag Football Classic will feature former Sooners such as Jamelle Holieway, Rufus Alexander and Charles Thompson, among others, and then the annual Red-White Game will begin at 2 p.m. This will be the fans' first opportunity to see how some of the Sooners have blossomed so far this spring, including pivotal units such as the offensive line and wide receiving group, featuring electric speedster Ryan Broyles. Tickets are still on sale through tonight for $5, and after tonight they will be $13.

2. Bedlam "Non-conference" baseball—Yes, you read that correctly. The Sooners will head to Stillwater tonight for a 6:30 p.m. first pitch against the Oklahoma State Cowboys. OU enters the game at 25-7, with a 5-5 conference record, while the Cowboys are 18-12 and 3-6 in the Big 12. This is the first time in 14 years that the two have met on a campus site instead of their normal neutral locations of Tulsa and Oklahoma City later in the season. Of course, the two will still meet for that three game series in early May. OU has won three of the last four meetings between the schools, including a 2-1 series victory last year.
