A College World Series rematch with Cal State Fullerton highlights Oregon State’s 2018 baseball schedule, which was released Tuesday afternoon.
The Beavers, who finished 56-6 last season, will host the Titans for a three-game set March 9-11 at Goss Stadium. The final two games will be broadcast live on Pac-12 Network.
In last June’s CWS opener, OSU came back to defeat the Titans 6-5.
OSU is scheduled to have 22 games televised by Pac-12 Network, including the full series at home against Oregon (April 19-21), Stanford (May 11-13) and UCLA (May 24-26). The first and third games of the series against Washington (March 23 and March 25) will be broadcast.
The Beavers’ final nonconference game of the regular season, May 15 against San Diego, will also be a Pac-12 Network telecast.
The remaining eight TV games will be away from Goss Stadium. OSU is set to visit Arizona for three games April 6-8, and the three-game series at USC from May 18-20 will also be broadcast. In addition, nonconference matchups with Oregon on May 1 and May 8 will be televised.
OSU opens the 2018 season with eight straight games in Surprise, Arizona. The Beavers will take on New Mexico on Feb. 16 to open the season and will also face Gonzaga, Cal Poly, Ohio State and Nebraska during a 10-day stretch in the desert.
The reigning Pac-12 champions play their first game of the season at Goss Stadium March 2 against Hartford for the start of a four-game series. That series will be the start of an eight-game stretch — the longest of the season at home — which also includes a solo game with Portland before the three-game series against Fullerton.
California marks the start of Pac-12 play for the Beavers, who will visit the Golden Bears March 16-18. OSU is also slated to play on the road at Utah (March 29-31), Missouri State (April 13-14) and Washington State (May 4-6).
Only one Pac-12 series at Goss is not slated to be televised: April 27-29 against Arizona State. The Beavers are also slated for a two-game midweek nonconference series with Nevada April 2-3.
