PREVIEW
The Red Raiders host the Kansas Jayhawks April 1-3 at Rocky Johnson Field for the first home Big 12 series of the season after starting off Big 12 play in Stillwater last weekend.

Both the Red Raiders and the Jayhawks got off to a slow start in league play, being swept by their respective opponents. Tech was upended by No. 7 Oklahoma State on the road while Kansas fell to No. 24 Texas in Lawrence.

Kansas leads the overall series 38-30, but the Red Raiders have gotten the better of the Jayhawks of late, winning nine of the last 11. Last season, Tech took two of three from Kansas in Lawrence, which helped the Red Raiders secure a spot in the Big 12 Championship. The Red Raiders are 4-1 in their last five outings against the Jayhawks.
