OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss baseball team will play 31 home games and play nine series against NCAA Tournament teams from a year ago as a part of the 2013 schedule head coach Mike Bianco announced on Wednesday.
The Rebels will open the season at home against TCU in a three-game series, kicking off the year against the team Ole Miss faced in the NCAA Regional championship game last year. It’s the first of eight-straight home games to start the year for the Rebels.
Twenty-seven of the Rebels’ 56-game schedule will be against teams who advanced to the post-season last year.
"We're excited about our schedule this upcoming season and think it is one that will be of interest to our fans as well," Bianco said. "We have a good mix of teams in the non-conference that we hope will challenge us as we prepare for the rigors of the Southeastern Conference."
The season opens against TCU (Feb. 15-17) as one of four weekend series in non-conference action. Ole Miss will also play home weekend series against Rhode Island (Feb. 22 – 24) and Lipscomb (Mar. 8-10). Home midweek games against UT-Martin (Feb. 20), Memphis (Feb. 26) and a pair of non-conference games against Southeastern Louisiana (March 5-6) mark the early non-conference games for the Rebels.
Ole Miss will also go on the road for non-conference games at Florida International (March 1-3) and Louisiana-Monroe (March 12-13) before kicking off Southeastern Conference play. Scattered throughout SEC play will be non-conference home games against Arkansas State (March 27), Arkansas-Pine Bluff (April 24) and Saint Louis (May 1).
The Rebels will play five home series in conference play and five road series. Ole Miss will host Texas A&M (March 22-24), Vanderbilt (April 5-7), Alabama (April 12-14), Kentucky (April 26-28) and Mississippi State (May 10-12).
Road series in conference play include trips to Arkansas (March 15-17), Florida (March 29-31), Tennessee (April 19-21), Auburn (May 3-5) and LSU (May 16-18).
Ole Miss will also play non-conference road games at Arkansas State (March 20), Memphis (April 2) and Southern Miss (May 14).
The annual meetings with Mississippi State in the Governor’s Cup game (April 9) and Southern Miss (April 16) at Trustmark Park highlight the rest of the midweek non-conference matchups for the Rebels.
