(Arlington, Texas-AP) -- Jeff Ontiveros' first-inning solo homer and two-run double in the fifth helped propel Texas to an 8-to-5 win over Oklahoma and into the Big 12 baseball tournament finals.

The Longhorns move on to play Nebraska in Sunday's finals at The Ballpark in Arlington. The Cornhuskers have won the last three Big 12 tournaments.

Saturday night's win was Texas' second of the day over the Sooners.

Earlier, Ray Clark struck out ten in eight innings as the Longhorns beat the Sooners, 2-to-1, to force the second-game tiebreaker.

The Longhorns have now defeated the Sooners four times in five games this season.
