Due to rainy weather, Texas had baseball and softball games wiped off the schedule on Sunday.
The baseball team was set to close out a three-game series at Oklahoma State, while the softball squad was being hosted by Kansas. In an effort to beat this weekend’s weather forecast, the two teams scheduled double-headers on Friday and series finales on Saturday. On Saturday, though, those third games were delayed until Sunday.
Those weekend-ending games were cancelled a day later. They will not be rescheduled.
That'll be all from Stillwater—weather has cancelled today's ballgame. Catch your Horns at UFCU Disch-Falk Field on Tuesday night! #HookEm 🤘

This weekend’s road trips weren’t a complete waste for the Longhorns. Texas (30-16) improved to 9-8 in Big 12 play on the baseball field with its 5-4 and 7-0 wins over Oklahoma State on Friday. The Longhorns (28-20; 6-8) also earned a softball sweep with its 10-0 and 2-0 wins in Lawrence.
Texas will next play baseball on Tuesday when it hosts UT-Arlington at UFCU-Disch Falk Field. The following day, Texas and A&M-Corpus Christi will play softball at McCombs Field.
