Oklahoma State Baseball is no stranger to Arlington, Texas and Globe Life Field. The Cowboys are among the most familiar college baseball teams to the building after making multiple appearances in the College Baseball Showdown, including in 2023, and at the Big 12 Baseball Tournament. 

And the Cowboys are back in the Globe Life Field saddle again in one of the most stacked fields of the three-week showdown this season. Oklahoma State is part of the Kubota College Baseball Series Weekend 2 that features teams ranked in various polls at No. 2 and No. 3 in Arkansas and Oregon State. 

The third team is Michigan, who is among the best teams from the Big Ten. 

The Cowboys are no slouches. Despite losing a considerable amount of talent from last year's team, OSU started the season on the cusp of some rankings and in at No. 21 on another. But the season didn't start the way they wanted. 

Oklahoma State lost on Opening Day in Huntsville, Texas to Sam Houston, 7-2 and again 2-1 before exploding in Game 3 for a 19-2 win. They played Abilene Christian at Globe Life Field on Feb. 21 in a warm-up game to the weekend. 

Here's what to know about the Oklahoma State baseball team's trip to the Kubota College Baseball Series. 

MLB Draft Prospect Carson Benge Off To Strong Start

Carson Benge, one of the best hitters in college baseball, slashed .583/.833/.643 in week one. He scored three runs and drove in four more. The sophomore outfielder and pitcher is a top-30 prospect in the FloBaseball composite rankings, coming in at No. 26. 

Benge had Tommy John surgery in  2022 and in 2023 he was a semifinalist for the John Olerud Award for best two-way player. As a pitcher in 2023, he had a 6.69 ERA in 10 starts 35 innings. As a hitter, he hist .345 with 17 doubles. 

With a fastball clocked at 96, Benge is definitely as much of a pitching prospect as a hitter. In his first appearance this season he walked two and recorded an out in the four batters he faced last week.
