Baylor's Rodriguez Pulling for Big 12 Teams in Omaha

Waco, TX - Baylor will not be in the College World Series this year, but their head coach Steve Rodriguez hopes to see their fellow Big 12 teams fare well.

The Bears won the Big 12 tournament championship and Rodriguez hopes a good showing in Omaha will show the country how tough their league is.

"I think it's a great representation for our conference, knowing that we have two teams in the college world series," he said. "It just says a lot about our conference and how good it is, and how tough it is. And when everybody's going toe-to-toe on the weekends for the amount of weeks that we are, they start top realize that man we are a really good conference, and I know our guys know they compete with each team, so I'm hoping they do well in Omaha, I really do, because it continues to speak volumes about the Big 12."

Texas and Texas Tech will face off against SEC foes on Sunday in Omaha.
