Florida's 56-game baseball schedule features 36 contests at McKethan Stadium, where the Gators were 31-8 (.795) last season and are 155-34 (.820) during sixth-year coach Kevin O’Sullivan’s tenure.

UF has more than half of its games against opponents who advanced to the 2012 NCAA Tournament, including home series against Kentucky, Miami, Ole Miss and South Carolina, and will have three series totaling nine games against teams that reached Super Regionals, two of which advanced to Omaha.

For the 13th-consecutive season, and the 25th time in 27 years, the Gators will open their season at home, hosting a three-game series against Duke from Friday-Sunday, Feb. 15-17. Florida will be tested by the challenging 30-game Southeastern Conference schedule and will also face traditional Sunshine State rivals Florida State, Miami, Florida Atlantic, Florida A&M, Florida Gulf Coast, Jacksonville, North Florida, UCF and USF.

UF will clash with Florida State in three mid-week affairs, hosting the Seminoles on March 12, facing its arch-rivals on March 26 at The Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville and visiting Tallahassee on April 9. The Gators host Miami for three games over March 1-3. Other foes who will visit McKethan Stadium include Georgia Southern (Feb. 20) and Indiana (March 8-10).

Season tickets, which went on sale Tuesday, can be purchased online at www.GatorZone.com/tickets or by calling the Gator Ticket Office at 1-800-34-GATOR from 8:30 a.m -5 p.m., Monday through Friday. The deadline to renew season tickets is Dec. 14 at 5 p.m.
