TCU and Baylor are in a rain delay. The score is TCU 5, Baylor 2 after seven innings.

You watching these online or on tv?
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

Texas Tech defeats West Virginia 10-3. These same teams will play again this evening with the loser eliminated and the winner advancing to the championship game tomorrow.

Next up: TCU vs Oklahoma State in an elimination game for TCU. If the Frogs win, they'll play the Cowboys again after the Texas Tech vs West Virginia game.

TCU defeats Oklahoma State 13-6. Maximum baseball at the Big XII tournament as both "if necessary" games become necessary.

Texas Tech vs. West Virginia is next up for the night cap of their double-header with the winner playing for the title tomorrow.

Man, what time will the TCU game start? They're going to be playing into the wee hours.
I remember all the good times me 'n Miller enjoyed
Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

West Virginia defeats Texas Tech 2-0.

The Mountaineers advance to the championship game tomorrow against the winner of the Oklahoma State vs TCU game which will, weather permitting, start in about a half hour.

Conference tournaments are stupid.  Goes against the whole way college baseball is played.  Regionals too.   Everything should be 3 game series.  But TV....
There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese.

Since when are round robin tournaments going against the way baseball is played?

Since it’s the opposite of how the entire college season is played out?   Besides leading to ridiculous pitch counts, a 3 game series is a much better option.

TCU and Oklahoma State go into extra innings tied at 5. TCU scores one run in the top of the tenth, but OSU responds with two runs in the bottom of the inning to walk it off at 7-6.

Oklahoma State vs West Virginia for the final. I'm not sure when the game will start.

I agree that two out of three is a better format, but the double elimination (not round robin) group of four is the next best thing. It allows for a team to recover if they run up against a lights out pitcher but rewards the team that wins its first two games.

Probably about 9:30 at night.

West Virginia pitching is dominating so far. After one-hitting the Red Raiders yesterday, they've only given up one hit to Oklahoma State through four innings today in the final.

WV 1 - OSU 0 after four innings.

Oklahoma State comes back to win 5-2.

Oklahoma State is the 2019 Big XII Tournament Champions.
Texas Tech wins the regular season championship.

Both are likely to be national seeds in the NCAA tournament. West Virginia has done enough to host a regional, Baylor may also host a regional and TCU may have done enough to squeeze into the field.

The Big XII is a great baseball conference.
