COMMENTS

SEC baseball stalwarts Florida and South Carolina will battle it in a conference opening series. Florida is loaded again after winning the 2017 National Title and is tough on the mound and at the plate. The Gators should win this series but look for the somewhat rebuilding Gamecocks to steal at least one.

Series Prediction


Florida 2 wins, South Carolina 1 win
