The Ohio State University has released their 2008 baseball schedule. The Buckeyes will open the year in Millington, Tennessee with a three game series. Arkansas State, Memphis and Seton Hall will provide the competition from February 22 -24. Then, it's three at College Station, Texas.
Host Texas A&M, Louisiana Tech and Arkansas will be on the docket from February 29 - March 2. From the Lone Star State, OSU will finish their winter road trip with a stay in Florida. Air Force, Maine and Connecticut will take on the Buckeyes in West Palm Beach from March 7 -9. OSU will then travel to Bradenton to play their Spring Break schedule from March 15 - 21. The opposition for those dates has not been announced.
Coach Todd's side opens the home slate with a visit from Pittsburgh on March 26. The Panthers will be the lone home opponent before Big Ten play begins. OSU will host, in order, Penn State, Minnesota, Purdue and Illinois. The road series will be at Michigan State, Northwestern, Michigan and Iowa.
As always, I'm leaving out a few non-conference games. I do expect you to click through and check the whole schedule, if you are so interested. (I will mention that the Central Michigan game on April 9 could be interesting. Well, interesting to me anyway.) It's also important to keep in mind this is a college baseball schedule, thus it is not only subject to change, it's almost a sure thing.
