For the second straight season, the South Carolina baseball team will face a pair of ACC opponents this fall.
The Gamecocks will travel to North Carolina State on Sunday, Sept. 29 and will host Georgia Tech on Sunday, Oct. 20 at 1:30 p.m.
Starting in the fall of 2018, the NCAA allowed Division I baseball teams to play two fall scrimmages against outside opponents without counting against the 56-game spring schedule. The Gamecocks will face the Wolfpack, who were 42-19 last year and played in the NCAA Greenville Regional. Carolina defeated the Wolfpack, 10-8, in Charlotte last April 2 on a walk-off home run from Jacob Olson. They also beat the Wolfpack 2-1 in a scrimmage last fall.
Carolina will host Georgia Tech at Founders Park. The Yellow Jackets were 43-19 last season, hosted the Atlanta Regional and were the No. 3 overall national seed in the 2019 NCAA Tournament. The Georgia Tech game will be free and open to the public.
South Carolina finished 28-28 last season and missed the NCAA Tournament in head coach Mark Kingston's second season.
