Momentum can change quickly in baseball, as evidenced by the performance of Texas over the last week. The Longhorns cruised to a 3-game sweep against West Virginia last weekend to get hopes up that postseason baseball could be coming to Disch Falk-Field. Those hopes were quickly dashed in Arlington as Texas quickly exited the Big 12 Tournament with an 0-2 record. After getting beat by 8-seed Kansas on Wednesday, the Longhorns could only muster 2 hits in a 6-0 loss to 5-seed Kansas State.
The early exit likely means the Longhorns will hit the road for regional play next week. The selection show is set for Monday morning when the full field of 64 will be announced. The latest projections from d1baseball.com had Texas as a 2-seed in the Palo Alto Regional with top seed Stanford, UC Santa Barbara and San Jose State.
The last time Texas played a regional on the road was 2017, when the Longhorns made it to the regional final of the Long Beach State regional before falling to the Dirtbags.
