Nebraska baseball released Wednesday its schedule for the 2019 season, which features games against seven NCAA tournament qualifiers and three College World Series teams.

The Huskers will spend their first three weekends on the road: at UC Riverside (Feb. 15-17), vs. Oregon State (Big Ten/Pac-12 Challenge in Surprise, Ariz., Feb. 21-24) and the Frisco (Texas) College Baseball Classic against Texas Tech, Sam Houston State and Mississippi State (March 1-3).

Oregon State, Texas Tech and Mississippi State all qualified for last year’s CWS. The Beavers are the reigning national champs.

Nebraska will play its first home game March 5 against UNO. The Huskers will also play nonconference weekend series at home against Baylor (March 8-10), New Mexico State (March 15-17) and Arizona State (May 10-12).

Nebraska opens Big Ten play on March 22 against Michigan State. The Huskers will also play conference home series against Purdue, Illinois and Michigan. Conference road trips include Minnesota, Penn State, Iowa and Northwestern.

In addition to the three CWS teams, other NCAA tournament participants from last year on NU’s schedule include Baylor, Minnesota, New Mexico State and Purdue.

Nebraska will face in-state rivals Creighton three times and UNO twice. The Huskers will play the Jays once at home (April 9) and twice at TD Ameritrade Park (March 26 and April 23). In addition to playing UNO in its home opener, NU will also play the Mavericks at Werner Park on April 17.
