Oklahoma State wins this game if...

The Cowboys do what they did in their regular season series against the Longhorns, which is knock out their starting pitching early. If the Cowboys can get past the Longhorns starter and to a bullpen that has been shaky and inconsistent all season, they will be in good shape to stay out of the losers bracket. Otherwise, if they let the Texas starter get in a groove early, it could be a long game for the Cowboys. 

Texas wins this game if...

Their pitching staff shows up and delivers a solid outing, from the starter to the bullpen. There is no doubt that the Texas bats can put up runs in bunches, but it will not matter if the pitching staff turns around and gives those runs right back. If the Longhorns can figure out their pitching ahead of tournament play, they might be able to make a deep run, but otherwise their stay in Arlington will be short lived.
