Texas is home to some of the most elite college baseball teams. In 2002, the Texas Longhorns took home the NCAA baseball national championship. In 2003, the Rice Owls took the title home. Now, the 2004 trek back to the College World Series begins. Early money says that Rice (preseason No. 1 in every poll) and UT (preseason No. 6) should still be around come June. But remember the cliché of the sports hack: You win some, you lose some, and some get rained out. Luckily, there are no rainouts at Minute Maid Park, whose roof will allow you to watch the Minute Maid College Classic in comfortable dryness, no matter the weather. Featuring nine games over three days, the field includes Rice, Texas, the University of Houston, Texas Tech, Kansas State and Ohio State (who'll be glad just to get out of the freezing temps at home). UT and Rice's big matchup happens Saturday at 7 p.m. It's a big baseball valentine to those who are sick of the major-leaguers' shenanigans. 11 a.m., 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. Friday, February 13, and Saturday, February 14; 10 a.m., 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Sunday, February 15.
