Baylor Baseball Set For First Big 12 Series vs. TCU

 Teams have not played a league series since 1996 in Southwest Conference

 WACO, Texas – Baylor will renew its rivalry with TCU this weekend in Fort Worth as the teams play their first-ever Big 12 series against each other.  Games are scheduled for 6:30 p.m. CT on Friday, 3:30 p.m. on Saturday and 1:00 p.m. on Sunday.

 The last time the teams met in league action came in 1996, when both teams were members of the Southwest Conference.  In that series, the Horned Frogs came out on top 2-1 in Fort Worth.  The Bears' last win in the series came in 1993 during a 2-1 decision in Waco.  Overall, Baylor leads the series 137-110 but trails 54-49 in Fort Worth.  The Bears won the last meeting 7-1 on Feb. 21, 2012 at Baylor Ballpark, ending a three-game winning streak in the series for TCU.

 All Baylor baseball games are broadcast live on Waco's 1660 ESPN Radio. Tom Barfield provides the play-by-play with Lark Smith adding color commentary.
