Top ranked Gator softball begins quest for SEC title today
The No. 1 Florida softball team will open play in the SEC softball tournament today, as the Gators try to earn their second straight SEC tournament championship.
Florida (52-3, 26-1 SEC) will play No. 8-seed Auburn in the first round today at 5 p.m. in Knoxville, Tenn.
The Gators won their first-ever SEC tournament title last season in Baton Rouge, La., with a 4-1 win over Alabama in the championship game.
If the Gators defeat Auburn, they will play the winner of the LSU (No. 4 seed) vs. Tennessee (No. 5 seed) game on Friday. Florida swept both teams in a three-game series during the regular season.
