Big 12 Standings
Kansas really needed to win the series against OSU this past weekend but instead failed to register a single "W." Fortunately for the Jayhawks, Sunday's game got rained out with KU trailing 2-0 in the third inning. Oklahoma State takes on in-state rivals and conference leaders Oklahoma next weekend, so the Jayhawks still have a decent shot at finishing fourth in the Big 12.
Kansas hosts Iowa State in a Thursday - Saturday set this week. According to CollegeSportsMadness.com, the Jayhawks are still in the projected field for the NCAA Softball Tournament as one of the Last Four teams in. KU cannot afford a loss to cellar-dweller Iowa State at this point.
