Cowboys to host Nebraska, CSF, Binghamton in regional tourney

STILLWATER  Oklahoma State has been awarded the top seed at the NCAA Stillwater Regional, with the four-team, double-elimination tourney also featuring second-seeded Nebraska, third-seeded Cal State Fullerton and fourth-seeded Binghamton, it was announced Monday by the NCAA Selection Committee.

 The NCAA Stillwater Regional will open Friday with Nebraska (40-19) taking on Cal State Fullerton (32-22) at noon at Allie P. Reynolds Stadium before OSU (45-16) faces Binghamton (25-25) at 6 p.m. It will mark the first time the Cowboys have been a Regional host since 2008 and the 11th time overall at Reynolds Stadium. The Pokes are are 33-11 all time in Regional play on their current home field and have won six Regional titles, the last coming in 1993.

"We're thrilled to get to host a Regional here in Stillwater, and we anticipate a tremendous tournament after seeing the pairings with some outstanding ballclubs coming to town in what should be an awesome Regional," Holliday said. "You look at a Nebraska team that's played exceptionally well as of late and been right at the top of the Big 10 standings. Cal State Fullerton coming into the season was a preseason number one pick in the country. And then a Binghamton squad that we'll learn much more about today.

"You're talking about ballclubs that have done something not only this year but certainly in the past. There's a championship-caliber heritage that exists in all these programs and certainly one that exists right here in Stillwater. We're looking forward to a challenging tournament. If you want to get to the top, you have to beat a number of challenging opponents along the road, and this is the first journey that our team has to get through in the postseason.
