A challenging schedule. Great local contests with Carolina, ECU, USC, UNCW and Coastal. Also looking forward to Dallas Baptist coming to the Hayes. We will see how our mid-week pitching staff handles unusual back-to-back games with UNC and ECU. Last season in CUSA.
Our non conference weekends to open up the season are going to be challenging.
Ball State - defending MAC regular season champs
Army- defending Patriot League Champs and NCAA tourney team. They have a new coach now.
At VT - Super Regional host last season
ODU - former CUSA foe now in the SunBelt
Then we jump right in to conference play at LaTech and then host DBU in the 1st 2 weeks. 2 of the teams competing for the title right out of the gate.
4ever niner says we will be top 10 by the second week of conference play.
clt says playing carolina and eCu at truist will be fun

27 Dallas Baptist (3 Games)

This should be one of the tougher schedules in the country.
Schedule designed to get an at-large. I like it.
