Florida opened the college baseball season with a sweep of Long Beach State, good enough to move up a spot in the latest D1Baseball rankings.

The No. 5 Gators (3-0) play at USF (2-1) at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday (98.1-FM, AM-850), host North Florida on Wednesday before Miami visits Gainesville for a three-game series starting Friday. Sophomore Hunter McMullen is the scheduled starter on the mound for the Gators vs. the Bulls.

D1Baseball Co-Editors Aaron Fitt and Kendall Rogers determine the Top 25 rankings in consultation with the D1Baseball staff. Records are through games of Feb. 17.
