The Nebraska baseball team (31-22) will make its 16th NCAA Tournament appearance in program history this weekend when the Huskers visit Oklahoma City, Okla., for NCAA Regionals. NU, the No. 3 seed at the Regional, is paired with No. 9 national seed Oklahoma State, UConn and Harvard. 

Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark, home to the Big 12 Tournament and Oklahoma City Dodgers (Triple-A affiliate for the Los Angeles Dodgers), will host the Regional after Allie P. Reynolds Stadium in Stillwater, Okla., was deemed unplayable due to field conditions.

The Huskers open the tournament against No. 2 seed UConn on Friday, starting at noon (CT) on ESPN3. The Cowboys and Crimson square off Friday at 6 p.m. (CT).
