LUBBOCK, Texas -- After playing one of the toughest schedules in the country this season, the Texas Tech softball team will take on yet another nationally-ranked opponent as they host the No. 15 Nebraska Cornhuskers in the team's final weekend series of the year. Saturday's series opener is slated for a 2 p.m. first pitch from Rocky Johnson Field and the match-up will conclude with a noon contest on Sunday.

Prior to Sunday's contest, Red Raider softball will honor its three seniors -- Erin Crawford, Julie Hauck and Amanda Oakes. All three student-athletes have be contributors both on and off the field during their careers in Lubbock.

On the diamond, Tech is attempting to rebound from a loss to Texas in the first game of a doubleheader at "The Rock" on Wednesday. Game two of the series was suspended and eventually cancelled with Texas leading by a slim 4-3 margin in the fourth inning when heavy rains entered the South Plains region.

Sophomore first baseman Jennifer Corkin have hit safely in 11 of her last 12 games, holding a .343 (12-for-35) batting average with three home runs and eight RBI during that span.

Junior centerfielder Ashley Parker will attempt to continue her record-setting pace on the base paths, as she attempts to add to her school-record 31 stolen bases this season. Parker sits in second place with 51 career stolen bases, trailing only Sandy Bulter, who swiped 84 bags from 1998-2001.

The Cornhuskers enter the series in third place in the Big 12 Conference standings with a 7-4 conference mark and a 33-8 overall record this season. Nebraska is led by head coach Rhonda Revelle, who is in her 14th year at the helm of the `Husker softball program.
