The Trojans will begin the season on the road at Cal Poly (Feb. 19-21) before the home opener at Dedeaux Field against UC Irvine (Feb. 23). USC will then take part in the UCLA Tournament against Oklahoma State, Vanderbilt, and UCLA (Feb. 26-28), followed by a mid-week road game at Long Beach State (March 2).
The Trojans will also play non-conference weekend series against New Mexico (March 5-7), Utah (May 7-9), and on the road at Hawaii (March 12-15). Home Pac-10 series will be against Oregon State (April 1-3), California (April 9-11), Arizona (April 30-May 2), and Washington (May 28-30). The Trojans will play road conference series at Stanford (March 25-27), Arizona State (April 16-18), Oregon (April 23-25), UCLA (May 14-16), and Washington State (May 21-23).
Pepperdine will begin the 2010 campaign with a four team round-robin series against Long Beach State, Cal State Fullerton, and Oregon (Feb. 19-21) followed by a home mid-week game against Cal Poly (Feb. 23). The Waves will then meet Cal State Northridge (Feb. 26-28) in a split weekend series, with two games in Northridge and one in Malibu. A trip to Baton Rouge will follow for Pepperdine, as they play two games each against Brown and defending national champions LSU (March 4-6). The Waves will then play seven straight home games against Northern Illinois (March 9-10), East Carolina (March 11-13), and USC (March 17).
The Waves will then have weekend series at Stanford (March 19-21) and at home against Stony Brook (March 26-28) before beginning West Coast Conference play on the road at Santa Clara April 9-11). Pepperdine will also have road conference series against 2009 conference champions Gonzaga (April 16-18), Saint Mary’s (April 7-9), and Loyola Marymount (May 14-16).
