The No. 1 Florida Gators will face the No. 16 North Carolina State Wolfpack in the NCAA Super Regional this weekend in a best-of-three series. The series will begin on Saturday at 2:00pm and continue on Sunday at 1:00pm. If a third game is necessary, it will be played at 1:00pm on Monday. Both weekend games will be televised on ESPNU and the Monday game will be on ESPN2.
The Gators (45-18) have the advantage of playing at home, while the Wolfpack (43-18) have to come into a hostile environment and eliminate that advantage if they hope to advance to the College World Series.
Both Florida and NC State advanced from their own home regions. The Gators needed only three games to advance, while the Wolfpack lost their second game, forcing them to win four to move on. Florida will hope to make quick work of NC State, with the Wolfpack looking at the possibility of pulling off what would be one of the tournament’s biggest upsets.
