Texas Tech will host No. 22 Oklahoma State for a three game Big 12 Conference series at Dan Law Field in Lubbock on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday to wrap up the regular season. Friday's pitching matchup features David Paiz (3-4, 5.44 ERA) for the Red Raiders against Cowboys starter Mike Strong (5-1, 2.81 ERA).

Texas Tech enters the weekend at 31-22 overall and 10-14 in the Big 12 at 7th place while Oklahoma State is 33-19 overall and 13-10 in the Big 12. The Red Raiders have lost 5 of their 15 conference games and most likely need two victories over the Cowboys this weekend and a couple more wins in the Big 12 Tournament to get back into the conversation for the NCAA Tournament.

Friday's game is at 6:30 p.m., Saturday at 5 p.m., and Sunday at 1 p.m.
