Where: Arrocha Ballpark, Lawrence, Kansas

When: 5 p.m. Friday; 2 p.m. Saturday; noon Sunday

Three things to know

• The series at Kansas will mark the beginning of an 11-game road swing for the Sooners. OU won’t play in Norman until May 4 against Oklahoma State. It’s the longest stretch away from home for OU since it opened the 1981 season with 12 consecutive road games.

• Oklahoma leads the nation in team batting average (.381), on-base percentage (.467), slugging percentage (.692) and runs per game (8.24). Five Sooners are hitting north of .400.

• OU leads the all-time series against Kansas 66-44. The Sooners swept the Jayhawks last year in Norman. Coach Patty Gasso’s squad hasn’t lost a Big 12 game since April 2017 — a streak of 31 straight.
