It will be Louisville...

...I more or less got my wish. Louisville wins, 8-7, and they had to use four more pitchers in the process.

Going into this evening's game, here's the updated pitcher usage...

Aaron Crow - 9.0 IP, 2 R
Rick Zagone - 5.0 IP, 4 R
Kyle Gibson - 3.1 IP, 1 R
Scooter Hicks - 0.2 IP, 0 R

Justin Marks - 5.0 IP, 3 R
Kyle Hollander - 4.2 IP, 0 R (2 games, pitched today)
James Bellanger - 4.0 IP, 4 R (pitched today)
Zack Pitts - 4.0 IP, 9 R (2 games, pitched today)
Skylar Meade - 3.0 IP, 1 R
Gavin Logsdon - 3.0 IP, 0 R (2 games)
Trystan Magnuson - 3.0 IP, 1 R (2 games, pitched today)
Chris Dominquez - 0.1 IP, 2 R
Colby Wark - 0.0 IP (3 batters faced), 1 R

Five of their pitchers have already pitched twice this weekend, including their lights-out closer (Magnuson), who went two innings today against Miami.

In other words, now is the time. Louisville's offense is hitting the ball well at the moment, but if the Tigers are patient (and they usually are), they will get plenty of good pitches to hit today.

Other early Big XII results...
ATM beats Ohio State, 10-4. They now have to beat UL-Lafayette twice.
Arkansas is up 4-0 on Creighton in the 8th. Winner has to beat Oklahoma State twice.
Baylor is up 5-3 on TCU in the 8th. Winner has to beat Rice (gulp) twice.
Texas beat Wake Forest, 7-4. They now have to beat UC-Irvine twice.

UPDATE, 5:28pm: Baylor gave up SEVEN RUNS IN THE 9TH to TCU and lost, 10-5. Their season is now over. Also, Arkansas ended up winning, 6-0.
