LSU will have more Southeastern Conference baseball games televised this spring than any other SEC team.
The Tigers’ entire series against Mississippi State will be televised, and LSU will have two games televised in series against Arkansas, Ole Miss, Texas A&M, Missouri and South Carolina.
The conference released its television schedule Tuesday, lifting some of the uncertainty surrounding the season with the inception of the SEC Network, which now holds exclusive rights for many games.
Cox Sports Television will televise all seven of the Tigers’ nonconference road games: against Houston (March 6), Baylor (March 7) and Nebraska (March 8) at the Houston College Classic, and at Southern (March 17), at Tulane (March 24), at Zephyr Field against Louisiana-Lafayette (March 31) and at UNO (May 12).
LSU plans to stream all of its nonconference home baseball games on SEC Network plus, the new online entity of the SEC Network.
LSU will have 13 of 30 SEC games on television. That’s one more than Ole Miss, Vanderbilt and South Carolina. The remaining 17 league games will be streamed online via the SEC Network, as The Advocate reported earlier this month.
LSU had more than 30 games on TV last year, including 17 SEC games, as CST was allowed to air all home games. LSU will have 20 games on television this season: the 13 conference games and seven road nonconference games, which don’t fall under the realm of the SEC Network.
Half of LSU’s 10 SEC series this season will be Thursday-Saturday, and four of those five are on the road.
LSU is ranked in the top 10 in three preseason rankings. The Tigers are No. 7 in Perfect Game’s poll, released Tuesday, and are No. 4 in Collegiate Baseball and No. 9 in D1Baseball.com.
