The Big Orange threw six home runs last Friday to hit the century mark for the season. After hitting three more homers on Saturday and Sunday, UT enters Tuesday’s contest with an NCAA-leading 103 longballs this season, eight more than second-place Old Dominion (95) and 17 more than third-place Texas.
