LOS ANGELES – The UCLA softball program on Monday officially announced its schedule for the 2022 season. There are currently 52 games listed on the schedule, including 22 home contests at Easton Stadium.
 
The Pac-12 Network is scheduled to televise 18 of the Bruins' 24 conference matchups, including the conference-opening series versus Arizona. Other UCLA contests that may be picked up by another family of networks will be announced when that information becomes readily available.
 
The Bruins' Pac-12 conference slate will return to its regular three-game weekend series format, played either from Thursday through Saturday or Friday through Sunday.
 
UCLA will open the 2022 campaign against Cal State Northridge on Feb. 10 at 7 p.m. (all times PST) at Easton Stadium and a double-header the next day on Feb. 11 against UC San Diego at 3 p.m. and Nevada-Reno at 5:30 p.m.
 
The Bruins head to Irvine, Calif., the next day to compete at the Mark Campbell Invitational at Bill Barber Park on Feb. 12 with another double-header against the reigning national champion Oklahoma Sooners at 4 p.m. and Mississippi State at 1 p.m.
 
UCLA's non-conference schedule is highlighted by the Bruins' return to the St. Pete Clearwater Elite Invitational from Feb. 17-20 and Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic from Feb. 24-27 after a one-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Bruins have competed in the Mary Nutter every year dating back to 2013.
