Gators to Face Vandy (Again) in SEC Tourney

The Gators certainly kept it interesting this weekend with three come-from-behind victories on their way to sweeping the final regular season series against Vanderbilt.

With the three wins over the weekend, the Gators earn a No. 3 seed in the SEC Tournament that gets underway Wednesday in Birmingham, Ala. It's the Gators first postseason appearance since 2005.

First-pitch between the Gators and the Commodores is set for 2 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon. The other first round matchups include No. 7 South Carolina against No. 2 LSU, No. 8 Ole Miss against No. 1 Georgia and No. 5 Alabama against No. 4 Kentucky. Arkansas, Mississippi State, Tennessee and Auburn failed to make the SEC Tournament.

Should the Gators beat Vandy for a fourth consecutive game, they'll face the winner of the South Carolina/LSU matchup at 6 p.m. on Thursday night. If they lose, they'll face the loser of the same game at 11 a.m. on Thursday.

This will be the Gators' 27th SEC Tournament appearance.
