The WSU baseball team announced their baseball schedule for the 2021 season on Friday.
The campaign will begin on Feb. 19-21 with a four-game series against UC Davis in California. The following weekend, the Cougars head to Utah to face Dixie State before going to the west coast of Washington on back-to-back weekends with a series against Seattle, then a split series with the Redhawks and Huskies. These meetings with the Huskies will not count towards their Pac-12 record.
The following weekend, WSU goes to Oregon to face Portland in one game before opening Pac-12 play on the same trip against Oregon State.
After two more road series, the Cougars will finally get their home opener on April 1 against Stanford, their 25th game of the 2021 season. That makes it nearly two full months before WSU gets a home game in the newly-renovated Bailey-Brayton Field.
Outside of the conference, WSU will also face UNLV, Gonzaga and Utah Valley on the road. They also host Gonzaga, Seattle and Portland, and they have a yet-to-be-announced series in the second half of the season.
WSU will host the top team from last year’s abbreviated season when UCLA comes to Pullman from May 7-9. The season will conclude May 27-29 with a three-game series against UW at home.
