DAVIS, Calif. - After its season-opening tournament at UNLV, UC Davis will return home to face Pacific and Sacramento State on consecutive days. Once this brief homestand concludes, the Aggies will experience a short turnaround as the team will head to UCLA as one of four participants at the Stacy Winsburg Memorial Tournament.
Two games against Western Kentucky, one against Robert Morris and another two against tournament host UCLA will take place Valentine's Day weekend. Of those three opponents, two are found in each of the national polls. USA Today/NFCA Coaches Poll ranks UCLA No. 16 and Western Kentucky as receiving votes with Western Kentucky receiving votes in each poll.
UC Davis softball fans have a limited number of opportunities to witness their team in action at La Rue Field, of the five non-conference games on the Aggies' schedule, two will take place within a 30-hour time period.
Two days after UC Davis returns from Los Angeles, the team will host Stanford in its annual battle against the Cardinal. After that annual matchup, one the Aggies have won at home the last two seasons, the team will compete in 17 straight games, at four different tournaments before returning to La Rue to host Saint Mary's on March 26.
Pacific and Sacramento State, teams that were slated to open their seasons against one another before last weekend's weather altered their schedules, will instead face the Aggies in their respective season openers.
The first of two head-to-head meetings against their former Big West regional rival, UC Davis will host the Tigers Tuesday afternoon in its inaugural home game of the 2014 season. The return game, scheduled for April 23, will take place in Stockton and serve as the final non-conference contest for each squad.
As is the case with Pacific joining its new league, 2014 is the inaugural season for softball as a West Coast Conference-sponsored sport.
In its last season as Big West counterparts, UC Davis took two of three games held in Davis.
Wednesday's cross-Causeway affair is the first of two contests involving UC Davis and Sacramento State. For the first time since the 2012 season, the Hornets will visit campus; last season, UC Davis squared-off against Sac. State at the Fresno State Kick-Off, one of three contests involving both teams The 2013 season series concluded 17 days later when with a split of a doubleheader held at Shea Stadium.
Prior to Sacramento State taking four of the last five head-to-head meetings, UC Davis captured seven straight wins.
This season's series will conclude with a single game in Sacramento, scheduled for March 4.
