UCLA Bruins 2014 Baseball Schedule Released

UCLA baseball The reigning NCAA Champion UCLA Bruins have released their 56-game regular season schedule, as the Bruins will look to repeat by commencing their season with a three-game series at home against Portland.

The Bruins will face 10 PAC-12 conference opponents over a total of 30 games, including a pair of three-game series against conference powerhouses Oregon State and Arizona State.

Not only will the Bruins have to face worthy competition within their own conference, but they will also square off against non-conference teams that rank amongst the best in the country. Some of those teams include Cal Poly, Cal State Fullerton, and NC State.

“The 2014 schedule will present our team with a tremendous challenge,” head coach John Savage said. “We feel the non-conference portion will prepare us very well for the Pac-12 slate.

The importance of RPI is critical when it comes to selection time for the NCAA Tournament and we hope that this schedule will provide us with the chance to have a high RPI at the end of the regular season.”

The Bruins were the clear underdogs heading into the 2013 College World Series, but an impressive pitching core led by Adam Plutko and Nick Vander Tuig, as well as an unrelenting, determined attitude were strong enough to keep the Bruins alive and help them outplay (and outlast) their opponents in Omaha.

UCLA will attempt to do the same in 2014 and bring home a second consecutive (and third consecutive for the PAC-12) national championship.
