TULSA, Oklahoma — Oral Roberts University announced it spring baseball schedule this week and the action starts Feb. 17 on the road against Baylor.

"It's a really good schedule," Said Head Coach Rob Walton, "having eight games in a row at home will be nice, and scheduling top-ten programs like Cal State Fullerton and Oklahoma will help keep our RPI where it needs to be and give us an opportunity to get better. I am excited about this year's team, and the schedule sets us up to hopefully make a run at the end."

Other highlighted matchups include games against Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisville, Cal State Fullerton and Missouri State.

The Golden Eagles will open the season with a three-game series against Baylor starting Friday, Feb. 17 before an eight game homestand against Eastern Michigan, Wichita State and Alcorn State.
