In the final non-conference weekend series of the regular season, head coach David Pierce and No. 23 Texas baseball (10-6, 2-1 Big 12) host the Washington Huskies (4-7-1, 1-2 Pac-12) at the Disch over the next three days.

Pierce and the Longhorns have played well in the last week, winning three of their last four. Texas won the first Big 12 series of the campaign, taking two of three games against the No. 17 Texas Tech Red Raiders in Lubbock last weekend.

Texas also convincingly defeated Incarnate Word in a midweek contest at home on March 12 by a score of 7-1.

This is the first time that the Longhorns and Huskies will meet on the baseball diamond. However, Washington is coming off an impressive 9-2 win over the team that knocked Texas out of the postseason supers last year, the Stanford Cardinal, despite dropping the entire series.

Here’s a look at the TV/streaming information and game times for the Longhorns this weekend in a three-game series against Washington at UCFU Disch-Falk Field in Austin.
