GAINESVILLE -- The Florida Gators are but one weekend series away from the College World Series and all that stands in their way is a Southern Miss team making its first appearance in a Super Regional.
The Gators are heavy favorites to advance past this weekend. Southern Miss (38-24) is the only regional No.3 seed in the NCAA baseball tournament to advance to a Super Regional. The Golden Eagles defeated Georgia Tech 12-8 on Monday to win the Atlanta Regional.
Game 1 of the Gainesville Super Regional begins at 3 p.m. on Saturday (ESPNU). Game 2 is set for 7 p.m. Sunday (ESPN2). In necessary, Game 3 will be played at 1 p.m. or 7 p.m. on Monday (ESPN or ESPN2).
The Gators advanced to the Women's College World Series championship series on Sunday in dramatic fashion -- a walk-off grand slam -- but then lost the first game of the finals 8-0 to Washington on Monday. The Gators and Huskies return to action on Tuesday night.
