"We're excited about our 2013 schedule," first-year head coach Erik Bakich said. "Our non-conference slate should be very competitive in preparation for Big Ten play. We are fortunate to travel to different parts of the country with trips to California, Florida, South Carolina, and have a tremendous opportunity to play in Citi Field."
- Feb. 15-17: open season with three games at California
- Feb. 24: exhibition against the New York Mets at Port St. Lucie, Fla.
- March 7-10: trip to San Deigo to play four games against four different opponents; this trip and the one to Cal might well pay off on the recruiting trail as Bakich has already gotten one California commitment in the 2014 class
- March 15-16: two games at Coastal Carolina
- March 22: home opener against Western Illinois
- March 26: game against Yale to be played in Citi Field
