The University of Arkansas at Monticello baseball team will travel to Shawnee, Oklahoma this weekend to play Oklahoma Baptist in a three-game GAC series. The games, originally scheduled for Friday and Saturday, have been moved to Sunday and Monday due to the possibility of inclement weather moving in around Shawnee, Oklahoma.
The Weevils will face the Bison in a single game on Sunday at 2 p.m. and wrap up the series with a doubleheader on Monday starting at 1 p.m.
