Head Coach Mark Johnson has released the 2010 slate for his Sam Houston State Bearkats. After winning the Southland Conference Tournament in 2009, the Bearkats look to continue their winning ways this season. The team will open the campaign on the road against in-state foe TCU (Feb. 19-21). After returning from Fort Worth, Sam Houston State will host Prairie View A&M (Feb. 23), Utah (Feb. 26-28), and Texas Southern (March 2) as well as the Hillcrest Invitational Tournament (March 5-7) in which Creighton and Northern Colorado will take part.
The final weekend of WAC play sees four teams with a shot at winning the regular season title. San Jose State (11-7) controls its own destiny as they host Nevada (10-9). If the Spartans win three of four they would clinch the regular season title and the number one overall seed in next week’s conference tournament. They would share the league title with Louisiana Tech (and earn the No. 1 seed via tiebreaker) with a series split and a split in the New Mexico State/Louisiana Tech series. Nevada, currently the third place team, will win the regular season title if they sweep San Jose State or if they take three of four from San Jose State and Louisiana Tech and New Mexico State split their series.

#23 New Mexico State (28-4, 3-1) at Fresno State (16-14, 0-0)
Pete Beiden Field, Fresno, CA
Defending WAC champion Fresno State opens up conference play against New Mexico State. The Aggies are already 3-1 on the young conference season after defeating Sacramento State three out of four in Las Cruces, N.M. Fresno State looks to open its title defense strong after struggling a bit in non-conference play. The Bulldogs have played the entire non-conference with every team taking its best shot as they face the defending national champions. That elevated play from opponents has left the Bulldogs with a 16-14 record entering conference play. Meanwhile, the Aggies have built a 28-4 record and have national ranking of 23rd in the Collegiate Baseball polls.
As of last weekend’s games the Aggies lead the nation in runs scored (12.3/g) and home runs (72) and are third in batting average (.372). The Aggies are also looking to extend their six game road winning streak which is currently tied for best in the country along with Georgia and Eastern Illinois. Fresno State is 5th in the league in batting average at .273 and is averaging 7.2 runs per game. Fresno State boasts the league’s third best ERA at 4.62.
