Florida-Georgia Series Prediction

On paper the stats indicate that Florida should win this series. The Gators have better pitching, hitting and fielding numbers. However, don’t be surprised if Georgia picks up a series win. Scott Stricklin has built a very competitive baseball program in Athens.

Florida 2 wins, Georgia 1 win
