NORMAN, Okla. - The Oklahoma Sooners (10-12, 0-5 Big 12) host the Nebraska Huskers (10-14, 0-5 Big 12) on Sunday, April 20, at the Headington Family Tennis Center.  The match is slated for a 1 p.m. start.

The match will also mark senior day for two Sooner seniors.  Federico Chavarria and Ryan Thomas will be making their last home appearance in the crimson and cream.

"Senior day is always a sad day but we have enjoyed our time with these two gentleman for four years and I look forward to them going out in style with a Big 12 home win," head coach Paul Lockwood said.

In their last outing, the Sooners were defeated by No. 20 Oklahoma State 6-1, in Stillwater on April 16.

"The Big 12 Championships are days away and we will use this as a spring board into those matches.  We need to be focused and prepared for another tough Big 12 test," Lockwood added.

Last season Nebraska defeated Oklahoma, 5-2, in Lincoln.
