The Tennessee Volunteers have another huge series on tap this weekend, set to take on the Florida Gators in Knoxville. The Vols dropped two of three last week against No. 1 LSU, now they get No. 2 Florida at Lindsey Nelson.
It’s another early start to the weekend, with game one set for Thursday night.
The Gators sit at 25-5 overall on the year and 7-2 so far in SEC play. Florida brings a stout offense to town, currently sitting top ten in average, scoring, hits and homeruns. They’ll face Tennessee’s big-time rotation, which features the second-ranked ERA in the NCAA. Chase Dollander will get the series started, looking for his fifth win on the year.
Florida leads the overall series 154-94. However, Tennessee has won nine of the last ten against the Gators. The eighth-ranked Volunteers will be looking to build on their offensive success they found last Saturday, where they put 14 runs on LSU.
