Derek Odell has had some big moments in May and June for TCU. Maybe there are more in store.
His home run Tuesday night against Abilene Christian was a reminder of the power he showed as a freshman, when he hit four home runs, including two in one day in a regional tournament.
TCU needs to pick up one victory this weekend at Oklahoma to lock up its first Big 12 regular season championship. The three-game set against the Sooners concludes the regular season.
Oklahoma shortstop Sheldon Neuse might be getting a bit ahead of himself.
“It makes you want to show up to the park every day ready to go,” Neuse said of the regular-season- ending series against TCU. “You’ve got something to play for the last series of conference, looking to gain some momentum going into the (Big 12) tournament. We’ve got a good shot to win that as well. We have a really good shot to win that. I think that’d be the first time in school history we’ve won both, right?”
The TCU running back who started his career at Nebraska, will be the Horned Frogs' featured running back in 2015 as they chase a Big 12 championship, a playoff spot and potentially a national championship.
TCU’s quarterback underwent minor surgery on his non-throwing wrist at the end of spring practice. The procedure caused Boykin to miss the Horned Frogs’ final few workouts, but it wasn’t enough to knock him from atop the list of Heisman contenders in 2015. Gary Patterson said Boykin should be healthy by fall camp, which is great news for the Horned Frogs.
The postseason run by the No. 6 TCU men's tennis team will continue in Waco, Texas, as the Horned Frogs are set to take on No. 12 Wake Forest at Noon on Thursday, May 14 at the Hurd Tennis Center on the campus of Baylor in the third round of the NCAA Division I Team Championship.
New league rules were aimed at creating a better fan experience, including no-advantage play, no warmups with opponents and, most important, cheering and yelling allowed at any time during Big 12 conference matches.
