INDIANAPOLIS - After claiming its 16th Summit League baseball title, the Oral Roberts Golden Eagles are headed to the Stillwater Regional of the 2015 NCAA Baseball Tournament as the No. 3 seed, the NCAA Selection Committee announced Monday on ESPNU.
The Golden Eagles will face 20th-ranked Arkansas to open play on Friday at noon on SEC Network. Joining the Golden Eagles and Razorbacks in Stillwater are St. John's and host Oklahoma State.
Just this year, the Golden Eagles squared off with the Cowboys in a split series. ORU took the first game, 4-2, at J.L. Johnson Stadium before completing the season sweep in Stillwater with a 15-5 victory.
ORU is no stranger to the Razorbacks or Oklahoma State in the postseason, defeating both teams in the opener of the Fayetteville Regional in 2006. The Golden Eagles went on that year to the Clemson Super Regional.
It marks the 25th time in program history that the Golden Eagles will play in the postseason, and the first time since 2012. The team holds a 34-48 all-time record in the event.
The Stillwater Regional will be played at Allie P. Reynolds Stadium with a capacity of 3,821. The Oklahoma State ticket office is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and can be reached by calling 877-255-4678 or logging on to okstate.com/tickets.
