Visiting Cardinal start a difficult test before Big 12 play

AUSTIN -- In the early stages of the season, Texas head coach David Pierce and his players have repeated the benefit of playing a difficult non-conference schedule. They know while the games present a high risk of defeat, they also help prepare a forming Longhorns team for the quality of opponent they plan to see in the postseason.

Looking ahead for Texas Baseball

After a 39-24 campaign in his first season as Texas head coach, David Pierce has brought a renewed energy to the program.

This season, Pierce was one game away from two consistent goals of the Longhorn baseball program; hosting an NCAA regional and advancing to the super regional round.
