Gators jump to No. 1

After a 4-1 week and other teams struggling at the top of the polls, Florida jumped to No. 1 in multiple college baseball polls on Monday.

The Gators are the top team in the country according to the D1baseball and Perfect Game polls that were released on Monday.

Florida was ranked No. 2 in the D1baseball poll last week, but defending national champion Vanderbilt went 1-2 in a California tournament and dropped. In the Perfect Game poll, Florida jumped Virginia to take over as the top team.

The ranking comes one day after Florida coach Kevin O’Sullivan was frustrated with the way his team played against Maine over the weekend.

The Gators went 4-1 last week, splitting a midweek series with UCF and sweeping the weekend series with Maine. Florida will host Fairfield for a two-game midweek series before beginning Southeastern Conference play by hosting Tennessee for a three-game series over the weekend.
