Texas Sweeps A&M
InsideTexas.com
The Aggies brought their fans, but the Longhorns brought their brooms. Texas pushed three runs across in the final two frames to break a 3-3 tie and reliever Cole Green held the Aggies in check to help power Texas (34-19, 15-12) to a 6-3 win Sunday at Olsen Field in College Station, completing a series sweep of Texas A&M (42-14, 19-8).

Horns finish sweep of A&M
Austin American-Statesman
No errors all series. Late-inning heroics. Great pitching. In one weekend the Texas Longhorns have gone from worrying about making the tournament to wondering if they can host an NCAA regional. A three-game sweep of a top-10 team and Big 12 champion will do that. And that's exactly what the Longhorns did Sunday, completing a surprising sweep of No. 7 Texas A&M with a 6-3 victory at Olsen Field.

Fabulous finish brightens Texas' postseason hope

They saved their best for last when most were wondering if there were any best to be saved. There was, and it finally came out in the form of a highly improbable, three-game sweep of the Big 12 baseball champion when unranked and unlikely Texas stunned Texas A&M and won going away with a 6-3 victory on a brutally hot Sunday. As a result, these Longhorns could be going places in this upcoming postseason, starting with the league tournament in Oklahoma City on Wednesday and then stand a very strong chance of staying at home and hosting an NCAA regional in two weeks.

Texas A&M gets a break after loss to Texas
Dallas Morning News
Texas A&M found itself in baseball hell all weekend while being swept by rival Texas in a three-game series. But the baseball gods apparently got their paperwork screwed up. The Aggies woke up today probably feeling pretty good. The Longhorns showed no mercy Sunday afternoon as they finished the regular season with a 6-3 win over the Aggies at Olsen Field.

Texas sweeps A&M as Aggies win Big 12 title outright
San Antonio Express-News
Texas A&M didn't simply back into a Big 12 baseball championship. The baffling Aggies plunged through a trapdoor in claiming their first regular-season league title since 1999. Almost as baffling Texas, winners of nine of 10 games following a dismal start in league play, put the finishing touches on a sweep of the seventh-ranked Aggies with a 6-3 victory Sunday before 6,832 fans at Olsen Field.

Football recruiting

Devon Kennard: Spring Timing Day
InsideTexas.com
Last seasons, five-star defensive end Devon Kennard from Phoenix (Az.) Desert Vista topped the scales at roughly 230 pounds. Knowing he had to bulk up if he wanted to contribute early against much bigger competition, not to mention more talented, Kennard hit the weights and is now in the 245-250 range.

Aggies get last laugh, win show down title
Aggie Websider
Four years ago, many laughed at the idea of A&M winning the season title. Why on earth did Bill Byrne want to keep score of all the annual sports? But after claiming their first season title, A&M is able to have the last laugh.
