ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) – For the second-consecutive year, UCF baseball is hosting a regular-season tournament with a loaded field. The Knights (3-1) welcome Ohio State, Oklahoma and The Citadel for the UCF Baseball Tournament beginning Friday at noon.

It will be just the second on-campus regular-season tournament for the Knights since the 1993 UCF Classic. For all the latest scores and information on the UCF Baseball Tournament, visit our tournament central page below:

Tickets for this weekend can be found here. One ticket is good for both games each day. The UCF ticket staff will stub tickets for the first game, but fans are encouraged to bring back the ticket to get into the second game as well. Students can also earn as many as 5,000 Knightmare Rewards points by attending the Friday and Saturday evening contests.

Friday's action kicks off with a noon tilt between Oklahoma and The Citadel followed by the 7 p.m. nightcap with UCF taking on Ohio State. LHP Eric Skoglund (1-0, 1.50 ERA) will get the nod once again after stifling Siena last Friday over six innings. He will be opposed by Buckeyes (2-2) RHP Greg Greve (1-0, 3.00 ERA) in the fourth matchup all-time between the two schools.

The Citadel and Ohio State will faceoff Saturday at noon with the Knights and Sooners (4-1) meeting for the fourth time in program history at 6 p.m. After a solid debut as a starter last Saturday in which he went five innings and scattered five hits, RHP Spencer Davis (1-0, 3.60 ERA) gets the call against Oklahoma LHP Adam Choplick (1-0, 1.50 ERA).

The third and final day of the UCF Baseball Tournament will pit Ohio State and Oklahoma against each other in the 10 a.m. matchup followed by UCF and The Citadel squaring off at 2 p.m. The Knights own a 2-1 all-time edge in the series over the Bulldogs (2-2), with the two squads having last played a three-game series all the way back in 1987. 

UCF will be heard on the airwaves around Orlando on AM 740 The Game Friday and Saturday night with Scott Adams on the call. Pregame starts 15 minutes prior to first pitch. On Sunday, and as always for every UCF home game, fans can tune into All-Access to watch and hear the action from the baseball complex.

Video for non-UCF games will not be available. However, all six contests will have live stats provided via GameTracker.
