NU baseball vs. UConn

Nebraska's Spencer Schwellenbach and Jaxon Hallmark celebrate their win over UConn in a NCAA Regional game on Friday in Oklahoma City.

OKLAHOMA CITY — Thanks to a thunderstorm that moved through the Oklahoma City area early Saturday afternoon, the Nebraska baseball team's regional game against Oklahoma State has been pushed back to an 8:30 p.m. start.

That start time will likely remain tentative as the first game of the day, an elimination contest between UConn and Harvard, was moved to 4:06 p.m. from its scheduled 1 p.m. start.

The winner of the Nebraska-OSU game will be in the driver's seat for the regional title, needing just one more win to advance to super-regional play.

The winner of tonight's contest will move into a 5 p.m. Sunday championship game, while the loser will play at noon Sunday against the winner of the UConn-Harvard game. The winner of that game will move on to the 5 p.m. game.

A second championship game, if necessary, is scheduled for 6 p.m. Monday.
