The Big Ten Conference has decided (finally) to release a baseball schedule.
As previously stated, it will be a conference-only schedule. All 44 games will count as conference games. There will be no 2021 Big Ten tournament, which was supposed to be in Omaha in May (great sadness).
The schedule is 13 weeks, with 5 four-game weekends and 8 three-game weekends. Each team will play every other conference team at least three times (at least that’s the idea until Covid-19 decides otherwise).
Nebraska starts in Round Rock, Texas, March 5th against Purdue. Up next, Nebraska at Minnesota at US Bank Stadium, playing two games each against Iowa and Ohio State.
You can see the rest of the schedule below.
Last year was Will Bolt’s “first” season. They played 15 games, went 7-8 and never really got going, so I’d just consider this year Bolt’s rookie Nebraska season.
