Kansas is Friday’s Yahoo! Sports team of the day after beating Oklahoma 5-4 to take a 1-0 series lead in Norman, Okla.
We’re not in Kansas anymore but perhaps it’s not such a bad place to be. Kansas and Kansas State aren’t exactly known for their illustrious baseball history, but both programs are taking a huge step forward this season. Kansas State picked up a huge win over Oklahoma State in the series opener Friday afternoon. It also had a lead over the Cowboys in Game 2 before weather forced the game to be resumed Saturday. Kansas, meanwhile, defeated red-hot Oklahoma 5-4 in its series opener. Both programs will be in an NCAA regional barring a major surprise the next few weeks. How many of you had the Wildcats and Jayhawks in your preseason field of 64? My guess is not many.
