Rough SEC weekends have plagued the young Florida baseball team to start the league season, and, as a result, the Gators have been dropping in the weekly rankings.
After a 1-2 series vs. Mississippi State in Gainesville, UF dropped from No. 5 to No. 14 last week.
Then, after being swept at Vanderbilt, the Gators dropped to No. 23 on Monday.
Florida (16-10) looks to regroup against No. 20 Florida State (17-6) at 6 p.m. Tuesday in Jacksonville in the second Fresh from Florida Sunshine Showdown of the season. The game will air on the Gators Sports Network and SEC Network+. UF routed FSU 20-7 on March 12 in Gainesville. The series finale in Tallahassee is scheduled for April 9.
The Gators return to McKethan Stadium for a series against Alabama starting at 6:30 p.m. Friday, with games at 6:30 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday.
