Sophomore Dillon Peters started for the Longhorns and pitched six innings, allowing six hits, one earned run and struck out four in the no-decision. Chad Hollingsworth (2-0) was credited with the win after recording the final out of the eighth inning as the Longhorns turned three double plays.
 
Texas struck first in the bottom the second. Junior catcher Jacob Felts walked and stole second with one out. After sophomore Brooks Marlow grounded out and pushed Felts to third, sophomore Codey McElroy ripped a two-out double down the left field line, scoring Felts to put Texas up 1-0.
 
Stell led off the Texas fourth inning with a double to right field. Weiss drew a walk on a pitch that got away from the catcher, allowing Stell to advance to third. Payton then laid down a sacrifice bunt RBI to score Stell to extend the lead to 2-0.
 
With two outs in the Nebraska fifth, sophomore Austin Darby hit a pinch-hit single to right field and advanced to second when Payton threw the ball past McElroy. Senior Brian Peters drove in Darby to make it 2-1 with a stand-up double to the warning track in left field
 
Nebraska tied it up, 2-2, in the seventh off a Blake Headley RBI single. During the inning, Scheffert singled on Dillon Peters’ last pitch of his outing. Scheffert then advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt from Jake Placzek. After an infield single from Darby put runners on the corners, Headley smacked a pinch-hit single up the middle off sophomore Cameron Cox, scoring Scheffert from third.
In the home half of the seventh, junior Weston Hall, Stell, and Weiss all walked to bring up Mark Payton with two outs. Payton walked on four pitches from sophomore pitcher Aaron Bummer to score Hall and give the Longhorns the go-ahead run at 3-2.
 
The lead didn’t last long for Texas as Nebraska struck back in the top half of the eighth. After a leadoff walk and single put runners on the corners, Kash Kalkowski hit a sacrifice-fly to Hall in center field to score Christensen from third to square the score at 3-3. Freshman pitcher Toller Boardman closed out the inning, forcing Sanguinetti into a groundout to Marlow. Darby led off the Husker ninth with a bunt single, but Boardman was able to turn a key 1-6-3 double play as the Longhorns gained momentum before Hinojosa’s heroics in the bottom of the ninth.
