Arkansas-Florida Series Prediction

It’s rare for Vanderbilt or Florida to get swept in a baseball series. However, we saw both of those teams swept in week 3 of SEC baseball. The Gators are sitting at 3-6 in the SEC while the hogs are a sparkling 7-2. Arkansas should win this road series and maybe even sweep the Gators.

Arkansas 2 wins, Florida 1 win
