For the first time this season, the West Virginia baseball team will be broadcast on national television Friday, the Big 12 conference announced Thursday afternoon.

The Mountaineers have almost exclusively been shown on ESPN+ this season, with their one game against Pitt appearing on the ACC Network. Friday’s game against the Bears will be broadcast on ESPNU with the first pitch scheduled for 8:30 p.m. EST. West Virginia (11-12, 3.3 Big 12) will send senior left-hander Jackson Wolf (3-2,ย 2.36) to the mound while the Bears (19-10, 1-5) will counter with their own southpaw in junior Tyler Thomas (3-2, 1.65).

Friday’s game will be the first of a three-game series WVU will play against BU this weekend. The rest of the weekend’s pitching matchups will be Adam Tulloch (0-2, 6.86) vs Blake Helton (2-2, 3.49) on Saturday and Ben Hampton (2-0, 2.63) vs Hayden Kettler (3-1, 3.90) to close the series on Sunday.
