The Ole Miss baseball team will be featured 12 times on television in the inaugural season of ESPN’s SEC Network’s baseball coverage. In addition, 33 additional games, including all home games, will be SEC Network+ events available to stream on and WatchESPN.

The Rebels will appear eight times on SEC Network, three times on ESPNU and once on ESPN. The eight SEC Network broadcasts will be the Saturday and Sunday contests against LSU, the Friday game at Arkansas, the Saturday Vanderbilt game, the Saturday Alabama game and the entire Mississippi State series.

Ole Miss will appear twice in the Thursday night ESPNU games, against Arkansas and Vanderbilt. The third ESPNU broadcast is the Sunday game against Florida. The Sunday game against Alabama will be broadcast on ESPN.

The SEC will receive unprecedented coverage, with 80 games slated to air on the network dedicated to Southeastern Conference sports, part of more than 100 planned across television networks (ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU or SEC Network).

The new network will quadruple SEC baseball’s coverage over last year’s nationally televised schedule. SEC Network and ESPN2 will conclude the regular season with comprehensive coverage of the SEC Baseball Tournament, marking the first time the entire tournament has aired on national television.

The Rebels open the 2015 season on Friday, Feb. 13 against William & Mary. First pitch is set for 4 p.m.
