Fresh off of a 3-1 week with a win over the nation’s No. 1 team, the Florida Gators rejoined the top five of the Baseball America Top 25. Up two spots from No. 7, the Gators come in at No. 5 this week.
Florida is joined in the top five by instate rival Florida State (who the Gators swept this season), future conference rival Texas A&M, and current SEC members Kentucky and LSU. The future is very bright for the state of Florida and the Southeastern Conference. South Carolina, Arkansas and Ole Miss are also in the top 25.
The Gators face one of the SEC teams not ranked this week – Georgia – in a three-game weekend series starting Friday in Gainesville. First up is a Tuesday meeting with Georgia Southern.
