[su_spacer size=”20″] Georgia (21-23, 6-14 SEC) returns to action Friday at sold out Foley Field for an SEC series with No. 8 Florida (33-12, 13-8 SEC). In Florida’s last visit to Athens in 2013, the Bulldogs claimed the series 2-1 while the Gators swept the 2014 series in Gainesville. Overall, UF leads the all-time series 169-78-2 in records dating back to 1950.
[su_spacer size=”40″] Last weekend in the SEC, Florida dropped a home series to Kentucky while the Bulldogs were swept at Auburn. The Bulldogs, under the direction of Scott Stricklin, are looking to qualify for the SEC Tournament as 12 of the 14 squads make it this year. Currently, Georgia is in 14th place in the SEC, a half game behind Tennessee and Miss. State who are both 7-14 while Alabama is next at 8-13. The Gators are two games behind No. 6 Vanderbilt (33-13, 15-6) in the Eastern Division and in the race for the SEC title. Georgia is 10th in the SEC in batting (.266), 12th in ERA (4.22) and ninth in fielding (.971). Florida leads the nation in fielding at .985 and ranks third in the SEC in batting (.304) and fourth in the league in ERA (3.29).
[su_spacer size=”40″] The Friday and Sunday games in the series will be available on SEC Network+ while Saturday’s action will be on ESPNU. One radio note for the series, the Sunday game will be available locally on WXKT 103.7 FM instead of 960 AM.
[su_spacer size=”40″] On Saturday, Georgia will honor the 1990 NCAA Champion Bulldogs as they celebrate the 25th year anniversary of winning the SEC’s first national title in baseball. It will part of Lettermen’s Weekend where Bulldogs from as far back as the 1940s are slated to attend including more than 20 members of the 1990 champions.
