The official 2016 Hawaii baseball schedule released Thursday has a much different look.

The Rainbow Warriors will open the season away from home for the first time since 1994 when they renew an old rivalry against Hawaii-Hilo on February 13.

The teams will play two games at UH-Hilo on Saturday and Sunday of opening weekend. It’s the first time the Rainbow Warriors and Vulcans will play since 2008.

Hawaii had opened with Oregon in each of the last five seasons but won’t play the Ducks for the first time since 2008.

The home opener is Feb. 19 for the first of a four-game series against New Mexico before UH goes on the road to play at San Francisco.

Hawaii will then host West Virginia, Michigan, Chicago State and Santa Clara for four-game series’ before opening Big West play at home against UC Irvine.

UH will end the season with a three-game home nonconference series against Arizona.

Also, Hawaii will move home dugouts this season, opting for the third-base dugout instead.
