A trip to Texas A&M, where the 2017 Super Regional team picked up steam with a league-opening road sweep of the Aggies, follows Apr. 8-10.
Easter weekend brings a trip to Missouri for a Thursday through Saturday series in Columbia (Apr. 14-16) before Vanderbilt, which has played in each of the past two NCAA College World Series championship series, arrives in Lexington Apr. 22-24.
