It may be Fall, but it’s not far from baseball season West Virginia. Big 12 schools like WVU released their baseball schedule for the 2023 season.
This coming year will mark manager Randy Mazey’s 11th in Morgantown. WVU’s schedule will be packed with intriguing matchups and tough challenges as Mazey looks to continue building up the program after losing some key contributors from the 2022 team.
The Mountaineers’ schedule, which can be found in full at WVUSports.com, will feature 56 games, most notably with 29 of them against opponents who made the NCAA Tournament last year. This will mean 12 different opponents who are coming off a postseason appearance a season ago, including 3 regional hosts and a national finalist. WVU will play at Wagener Field at Monongalia County Ballpark 24 times.
WVU officially opens up its season, the 131st year in program history, with a series at Georgia Southern from Feb. 17-19 before then traveling to Maryland to battle the Terps on Tuesday, Feb. 21, in College Park.
Mazey’s club will then head out west for a trip to Arizona for a weekend series from Feb. 24-26, in Tucson, This trip also means an exhibition matchup with Arizona Diamondbacks on Monday, Feb. 27, in Scottsdale. WVU met the MLB franchise in a similar manner back in 2017.
Up next is a 3-game weekend series in Virginia against 3 separate teams in 3 days. WVU will meet William & Mary in Williamsburg and then both VCU and Richmond in Richmond.
By this point, WVU will finally be back home for the home opener. On Mar. 8th, the Mountaineers are set to take on Canisius and then enjoy a 4-game home-stand with Minnesota coming to town too.
West Virginia then plays 5 in a row in the state of North Carolina, starting with Appalachian State and ending with UNC Greensboro from March 17-19.
It’s then back home for 6 for WVU, who plays host to Hofstra, Xavier and then in-state rival Marshall.
The first Big opponent is Kansas State in Manhattan, Kansas on Mar. 31 to Apr. 2. WVU then sees Kansas on Apr. 7 with another series against Marshall in Charleston, West Virginia in the middle of the conference games.
WVU then goes to Penn State on Apr. 11, Oklahoma State from Apr. 14-16 in Stillwater and then it’s the Backyard Brawl with Pitt on Apr. 19.
The season rolls on with CU and PSU coming to Morgantown and then traveling to Waco, Texas to see Baylor to close the month.
May begins against Pitt on May 3 before welcoming Oklahoma, the NCAA National Runner-Up. The regular season ends with another trip to Pittsburgh to brawl with the Panthers and then a Texas road trip against Texas Tech and Texas.
The 2023 Phillips 66 Big 12 Baseball Championship is set to take place at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, for the second straight season and is scheduled to go on between May 24 and 28th.
