Texas Baseball clinches Big 12 Title

Both Texas (38-15, 19-4 Big 12) and Nebraska (37-12, 16-8 Big 12) have one more conference series left, but with the Cornhuskers loss to Baylor on Sunday, the Longhorns have claimed their third Big 12 title since the conference's inception in 1997.

"The Big 12 is one of the premiere conferences in the country and to win the championship is a difficult task," said Augie Garrido in a release from UT. "Our team battled hard to overcome numerous adversities in order to come together and this a reward for the changes they have made and the leadership that has developed. We now have to focus on completing the regular season and getting ready for postseason play while continuing to develop in order to handle the challenges that lie ahead."

Texas closes out conference play on Friday, May 19 when the Horns take on the Missouri Tigers in Columbia, Mo.
