March Madness isn't just about basketball. Another round ball game is heating up in March, too, beginning with the Creighton Bluejays baseball team, which plays its home opener at TD Ameritrade Park on FRIDAY (March 14) at 6:30 p.m. against South Dakota State. The Jays also play SD State on Saturday and Sunday at the gorgeous home of the College World Series.
Meanwhile, across town, the University of Nebraska at Omaha Mavericks host their home opener against Air Force on Friday at Ballpark at Boystown. The Mavs play Saturday and Sunday as well.
And down the road in Lincoln, the Nebraska Cornhuskers take on UC Irvine for a three-game series at its Hawks Field beginning Friday.
The highly anticipated Nebraska vs. Creighton baseball game is on TUESDAY (March 18) in Lincoln at Hawks Field. That game is at 6:35 p.m. The in-state rivals battle again on April 8 when the teams play in Omaha at TD Ameritrade Park.
