This game will be the rubber match of the three game season series. At the Dr. Pepper Classic in Frisco on February 22, the Cougars smashed 3 home runs to beat UTSA 12-10. The Roadrunners returned the favor less than a week later, scoring 3 in the 7th to come from behind and beat the Cougars 4-3 at Wolfe Stadium in San Antonio on February 27.


Proceeds from this game will benefit the UHV baseball and softball teams as well as the nursing program.
