Head coach David Pierce and Texas baseball (11-8, 2-1 Big 12) get back to work as part of this long 10-game homestand at UFCU Disch-Falk Field in a two-game midweek series against the Air Force Falcons (9-9, 5-1 MWC).

Texas and Air Force have become common out-of-conference foes in the last few seasons. After this two-game midweek series at the Disch this week, the Longhorns and Falcons will have played each other seven times since the 2022 regular season.

Pierce and the Longhorns started this season-long 10-game homestand at the Disch last weekend, losing a three-game series against the Washington Huskies. Texas dropped two of three games against Washington over the weekend but won the finale on March 17 by a score of 4-3.

Here’s a look at the TV/streaming information and game times for the Longhorns this week in a two-game series against Air Force at UCFU Disch-Falk Field in Austin on March 19 and 20.
