The Ohio State baseball team announced on Wednesday it will open its Big Ten-only schedule with a four-game set against Illinois in Greenville, S.C., on March 5-7.
The Buckeyes, who enter their 11th season under the direction of head coach Greg Beals, will play 44 games over the course of 13 weeks, concluding with a three-game series against Northwestern at Bill Davis Stadium over Memorial Day weekend.
The second weekend of the season includes a unique setup, where Ohio State will play two games against Nebraska and two games against Iowa at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minn., home to the NFL’s Minnesota Vikings.
Beals is 303-238-1 during his tenure at Ohio State, which includes three NCAA Regional appearances and two Big Ten Tournament titles. He’s produced 36 All-Big Ten honorees, 24 MLB draft picks and three All-Americans.
