College Baseball Countdown: 31 Days to Go- Houston's Non-Conference Schedule

But if you want your team to be battle-tested early on, put the team in a position to have some room for error for an at-large bid, and to host a regional at the end of the season if they win enough games, it behooves you to schedule tough, and that’s precisely what Houston head coach Todd Whitting and his staff did in 2018.

“Once again the schedule is one I feel puts us in the best position to earn an NCAA at-large bid. Our non-conference slate is filled with a variety of NCAA tournament teams, which gives us the opportunity to elevate our RPI. This schedule will be a challenge for our team, and we are looking forward to the competition ahead of us,” Whitting said in the school release announcing the 2018 schedule.
