Dawgs Host USC In First Pac-12 Home Series
March 21, 2013
Two of the three game times for the USC have been changed from the original schedule. Friday's opener has been pushed back to a 6:00 p.m. start as it was selected for broadcast on the Pac-12 Networks. Saturday's game remains a 2:00 p.m., while Sunday's series finale has been pushed up to a 12:00 noon first pitch to accommodate USC's travel plans.
Fans can follow live Gametracker stats of all three games via the links on this page. Additionally, live video broadcasts of the games on Saturday and Sunday are offered, for free, on the Pac-12 website. Just click the links on this page for the live video. Since Friday's game is on live television, we will not have a live stream, but depending on your cable or satellite package, you may be able to watch online in addition to on television.
ANOTHER STRONG SCHEDULE: Well-known college baseball website BoydsWorld.com released its strength of schedule numbers for the coming baseball season and, as usual, Washington's ranked very high. In fact, the 2013 Husky baseball schedule ranks as the third-hardest in the nation, behind only USC and California. Of course, the top nine on the list are all Pac-12 programs with only Washington State (24th) and Arizona (49th) ranking outside of the top nine. The rankings list all 298 Division I programs.
NEXT UP: After the series vs. USC, the Huskies will head out on the road for its next 11 games, including three straight weekend series away from Seattle. In that stretch, the Dawgs will face Oregon, Pepperdine (non-conference) and Stanford in three-game weekend series and will also play road games at SeattleU and Cal State Northridge.
HOME GAMES ON VIDEO: Washington fans can watch live video broadcast of all Husky HOME games this season (other than those games that will air on Pac-12 Networks television). There is no cost for this service and you can find the links via the UW baseball schedule page, or on future game and series previews like this one.
GAME PREVIEWS: GoHuskies.com has done away with the old, traditional "weekly notes" for many sports this academic year, so for the coming baseball season, this will be the manner in which each week's games will be previewed. The hope is that, with all of the links provided (particularly to the team's roster and bios, which will be regularly updated throughout the season, including updated career statistics), that fans will have much more information at their fingertips via this page than they ever had via old-style notes. If you have any thoughts on other links or information that might be included, please click on the "feedback" link at the very bottom of this page and let us know.
