Alabama baseball released its 2021 schedule Tuesday. The SEC slate features the same home-and-road series it would have played last season but in a different order, one that may prove tricky for the Crimson Tide.

It has road series at Vanderbilt and LSU before hosting Mississippi State to end the season, three teams that are currently in the top 12 of the D1baseball preseason rankings.

UA opens its season on Feb. 19 with a three-game weekend series against McNeese State, which won the Southland Conference Tournament and appeared in the NCAA Tournament in 2019.
