* Florida is one of six schools to win a national championship in baseball, basketball and football, joining Cal, Michigan, Ohio State, Stanford and UCLA. The Gators are the only program to win a title in each sport in the last 50 years. UF won football titles in 1996, 2006 and 2008 and back-to-back basketball titles in 2006 and 2007.
* Florida is one of four programs to win at least one national team title each of the last nine seasons. This is Florida’s 18th national title in that span. Baseball is the fifth Gator program to claim its first NCAA team title in the last nine seasons (baseball, gymnastics, softball, men’s indoor track & field, men’s outdoor track & field)
* This is the 39th national title for the Gator program.
* Florida has won three NCAA team titles in the last 36 days, as the Gators took the women’s tennis title on May 23 and won men’s outdoor track & field on June 9. This is the 10th season Florida has won multiple team titles.
* This is the second time the Florida program has won three national titles in a season. Florida also won the three in 2012 (men’s indoor & outdoor track & field, women’s tennis).
* Baseball is the 14th Gator sport to win a national title. That is the nation’s fourth highest array of sport titles for a program (and highest east of Mississippi). Florida is the only Southeastern Conference program to win national team titles in 10 or more sports.
* Florida equaled program highs for top-10 (13) and top-five (10) national team finishes in 2016-17
