Jennings went 4-for-7 (.571) with three home runs and five RBIs in her first Red River Rivalry series, homering in every game of the three-game set.

Jennings also registered five runs scored and 13 total bases. She finished the weekend slugging 1.857 to go with a on-base percentage of .545 and did not strike out. She has hit 20 home runs with 60 RBIs.

Jennings and No. 1 Oklahoma make a quick turnaround on Tuesday following their series sweep over then-No. 7/8 Texas, heading to Athens, GA, for a midweek doubleheader at No. 20 Georgia.

The Sooners and Bulldogs face off for Game One at 4 p.m. CT, followed by a 6 p.m. start for Game Two (or approximately 30 min. after the conclusion of the first game).

The first game will be available to watch on SEC Network while the nightcap can be seen via SEC Network+.
