The Southeastern Conference announced the 2022 baseball schedule Wednesday, including an exciting slate of games for the Ole Miss baseball team as Mike Bianco’s Rebels eye their fourth consecutive 40-win season.
Ole Miss opens its 2022 slate at home against Charleston Southern (Feb. 18-20), which will mark the return of former volunteer assistant coach Marc MacMillan, now the head coach of the Buccaneers.
VCU comes to town for the second week of non-conference action (Feb. 25-27) before the Rebels travel to Orlando to take on UCF (March 4-6), where they’ll look to exact revenge for a stunning series defeat to the Knights in Oxford last season.
In the final non-conference weekend, Ole Miss will host perennial baseball power Oral Roberts (March 11-13). After a quick midweek trip to Southeastern Louisiana, SEC play begins.
The Rebels open up its conference slate on the road at Auburn (March 18-20) before returning home the following weekend to host Tennessee (March 25-27). After a weekend road trip to Kentucky (April 1-3), the Rebels head to Pearl, Mississippi, for the return of their yearly rivalry contest with Southern Miss—also a rematch of last year’s NCAA Oxford Regional championship. The Rebels remain in Mississippi that weekend to host Alabama (April 8-10) before heading east to take on South Carolina (April 14-16).
The Rebels will play four straight games against defending national champion Mississippi State, beginning with a three-game series in Oxford (April 22-24) and concluding the following Tuesday (April 26) with the Governor’s Cup game in Pearl.
The SEC gauntlet continues with a road trip to Arkansas that weekend (April 29-May 1). Ole Miss then comes back home to host Missouri before heading to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, for the final SEC road trip of the season against LSU (May 13-15). The Rebels close the regular season at home against Texas A&M (May 19-21).
Start times and TV designations will be announced at a later date.
