2022 Texas baseball schedule: SEC's South Carolina, Texas A&M among repeat non-Big 12 foes
Few likely have forgotten how the Bulldogs brought an end to the Longhorns' quest for a national title via a 4-3 win in the 2021 College World Series.
But Mississippi State also was the first team Texas played in 2021. On Feb. 20, a No. 7 Bulldogs team dropped the Longhorns 8-3.
Barring an unexpected season by the Rice Owls — Texas' first opponent of the 2022 college baseball season — that scenario won't repeat itself this year.
The No. 1-ranked Texas baseball team faces eight non-conference teams they played in 2021: SEC teams South Carolina and Texas A&M; and Sam Houston, UTRGV, Incarnate Word, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, Texas State and Stephen F. Austin.
How did Texas do against these foes in 2021? When do they play in 2022?
