The Longhorns traveled to three SEC towns in 2017, but the schedule is flipped this spring. Texas is set to play LSU at home from March 1-3. Arkansas will be in town from March 19-20. Texas and Texas A&M will renew their rivalry on April 2.

Texas went 42-23 in 2018, and the Longhorns joined Texas Tech and Arkansas at the College World Series. On Feb. 15, UT will open the 2019 season at Louisiana-Lafayette.
