Post-Game huddle for the Cowboys Sunday Night.

The Cowboys are headed to Tuscon.

On Monday, it was announced during the NCAA Baseball Tournament selection show, Oklahoma State was placed in the regional hosted by the No. 5 national seed Arizona Wildcats.

“It will be a heck of a regional, I’m kind of excited that kids in the program get a chance to see a destination that we haven’t seen before. That creates some excitement and intrigue in their hearts and minds of going somewhere new,” OSU coach Josh Holliday said.

Also in the regional is The University of California Santa Barbara and Grand Canyon University. OSU defeated GCU twice this season in Stillwater and the third matchup was a 4-4 tie due to travel curfew.

Beginning June 4, it will be a double elimination competition in the regional to see which team will advance to the super regional, which begins June 11.

The first thing that popped into outfielder Cade Cabbiness’ mind was the weather. 

“It’s going to be a lot warmer than it has been (in Oklahoma). We’re looking forward to it. It’s going to be fun,” Cabbiness said.

Even with the sunshine in the forecast and a new town as a destination, there won’t be much sightseeing for the team. 

“We’re going to go out there with a very specific purpose and that’s to prepare to play at a high level. As much fun as it is to see something new, it’s a business trip for these kids and our team has got one purpose and that it to go play championship baseball and go win a regional.”
