After opening the last five seasons against each other, Hawaii and Oregon will take a year off before the Ducks return to Hawaii to start the 2017 season.
UH’s 2016 baseball schedule is set, pending any late changes, with New Mexico replacing the Ducks as UH’s opening home series.
Hawaii will then travel to San Francisco for a weekend before returning home to play West Virginia, Michigan and Santa Clara in consecutive weeks. The Rainbow Warriors wrap up the season with their final conference series at Cal State Fullerton, followed by a nonconference series at Arizona.
UH has played Oregon at least once every year since the Ducks restarted their baseball program in 2009. UH beat the Ducks in a tournament, 3-1, in ’09 and won three of four in the second series of the season in 2010.
Since then, Oregon has played a four-game series here to start the season each year with the Ducks winning 13 of the last 16, including the last 11 in a row.
UH has never played West Virginia, which finished 28-26 last year and was sixth in the regular season in the Big 12. The ‘Bows are 0-2 all-time against Michigan, which finished 30-29-1 in 2014.
