Looking back: The Sooners started the season perfect with four victories over Hofstra (including two walk-off wins) and a double-header triumph against Arkansas-Pine Bluff.
Notable: Infielder Matt Oberste was named the Big 12 player of the week, while lefty Dillon Overton was named the league's pitcher of the week ...

Looking back: OSU opened Josh Holliday's debut season as head coach by taking two of three at New Mexico and a double-header sweep against visiting Alcorn State.

Looking ahead: ORU, under first-year coach Ryan Folmar, faces its first road trip with a three-game set at Louisiana Tech, followed by a Tuesday trip to Wichita State.
Looking back: The Golden Eagles dropped two of three contests in their season-opening series against visiting Saint Louis. ORU fell 5-4 on Tuesday against Wichita State.
Notable: Senior Nate Goro, who hit .213 in 2012, has started strong with a team-high .467 average ... Jose Trevino is hitting .385 including two extra-base hits ... RHP Tim Zufall has the staff's only victory, throwing seven scoreless innings against Saint Louis.
