Texas baseball team unveils 2017 schedule

Posted October 7th, 2016


The Texas baseball team released its 2016-17 schedule Friday, and new head coach David Pierce’s squad will face seven teams that participated in last season’s NCAA Tournament.

The Longhorns will open the season with a four-game home series against Rice starting Feb. 17. Pierce spent 13 seasons as an assistant coach at Rice, 12 of them under current Owls coach Wayne Graham.

Texas will play a road series against Stanford in March and will host UCLA and Texas A&M before starting Big 12 play against Texas Tech at UFCU Disch-Falk Field on March 17.


UT will host three other Big 12 opponents — Kansas State, Oklahoma and West Virginia — and will play four conference road series. The Longhorns’ Big 12 schedule includes matchups against three teams that made it to the College World Series last season: TCU, Texas Tech and Oklahoma State.
