Louisville baseball releases 2015 schedule

The Cardinals will face 28 of 56 games against 2014 NCAA teams

The University of Louisville baseball program will begin it's journey for a third-straight trip to the College World Series when it opens the season on February 13 in Clearwater, Fla., as part of the South Florida Tournament.

On Thursday, the program released the complete 2015 schedule, which is highlighted by a challenging out of conference slate to go with a very difficult ACC schedule. The Cardinals will play 28 of 56 games against programs in last year's NCAA Championhip.

The Cardinals schedule features a 33 games at Jim Patterson Stadium, including contests featuring perennial ACC leaders Florida State, Miami and Georgia Tech as well as non-conference matchups against Ole Miss, Vanderbilt and Kentucky. Overall, Louisville will play six games against 2014 CWS clubs with a three-game series at national runner-up Virginia, a two-game home set with Ole Miss and a midweek home contest against reigning NCAA champion Vanderbilt in the annual Battle of the Barrel.

"This schedule is as challenging and demanding as any in the nation and we’re excited about the road in front of us in 2015," said Louisville head coach Dan McDonnell. “Ten weeks of regular season baseball in the spotlight of the ACC combined with all of the challenging non-conference opponents on this schedule should certainly prepare our players for the postseason and the road to Omaha."
