Oklahoma State Baseball: A Look into the Non-Conference Schedule

New, 1 comment

The Big 12 will have some powerful teams, especially the top four, but it is Oklahoma State's out-of-conference match ups that can help prove the Cowboys preseason No. 5 ranking.

The Cowboys are preparing for another run to the Super Regional round and perhaps Omaha.

Oklahoma State has its work cut out for it this season with a strong slate of games on its non-conference schedule. The schedule features five series against top-65 opponents and five other games against top-55 opponents. While some of the programs may not be ranked as highly this preseason, these teams are some of the most consistently successful programs in college baseball.

Arizona State, Oregon State and Wichita State will be tough opponents and the Cowboys will be playing both the Sun Devils and Beavers outside the friendly confines of Allie P. Reynolds Stadium.

The season will open up in Arizona, on February 13 against Arizona State.
