The Huskers start a new era of Nebraska baseball in 2012, with not only a new head coach in Erstad, but Nebraska will also play its first season as a member of the Big Ten Conference. NU has already released its 2012 schedule, as the Huskers will play 31 home games at Hawks Field and will have 13 contests against 2011 NCAA Tournament teams, including a four-game home stand against 2011 College World Series qualifier California.
The 56-game schedule starts with 10 games on the road before the Huskers host their home opener against former Big 12 foe Kansas State on Tuesday, March 6. The Huskers will play eight Big Ten Conference series, with the only conference teams not on the schedule including Penn State and Michigan State, as well as Wisconsin, which doesn't have a baseball program.
