OKLAHOMA CITY – The No. 5 seed Missouri Tigers recorded their second upset of the day in an 11-6 offensive explosion over No. 1 seed Texas on Saturday evening.  The Tigers advance to the Big 12 championship game for the fifth time in school history and second time in as many years.
Rhea Taylor went a perfect 5-for-5 at the plate with four walks, a triple, and a Big 12 Championship record three stolen bases.  Taylor drove in four runs and scored three times.  Jenna Marston went 3-for-4 with one run and four driven in, included three on a home run in the second.  Nicole Hudson picked up two hits and drove in two runs on a home run.
Kristin Nottelmann went the distance, allowing five runs on eight hits.  The sophomore struck out six batters in her 19th win of the season.

Missouri looks to defend its title Sunday in the Big 12 championship game against the No. 2 seed Oklahoma Sooners. The Tigers and Sooners split their series earlier this season in Norman, Okla.  The Championship game will begin at Noon CT and will be televised on Fox Sports Net.
