SEC Race Goes to Final Day

Sometime today the SEC will have a baseball champion or co-champs or tri-champs. The results from Thursday and Friday have done little to sort out the race entering the last day of the regular season.

At the moment LSU and Ole Miss are tied at 19-10 with the Gators right behind at 18-11. Alabama (17-10) which has to finish one game with Auburn and then play another is still in the picture, too.

We do know the Gators are SEC East Champs and will be the No. 2 seed in the SEC Tournament. We know the West winner will have at least part of the overall SEC Title and will be the No. 1 seed next week.

If the Gators beat Kentucky today they need LSU, Alabama and Ole Miss to lose in order to win a share of the league championship.

Alabama would be outright SEC Champs if they win twice and LSU and Ole Miss both lose.

LSU is the SEC Champ with a win and an Ole Miss loss.

Ole Miss is the SEC Champ with a win and an LSU loss.

Got it?

*************************************************************

In addition to the top four teams, Georgia, South Carolina and Arkansas have earned spots in the tournament with either Georgia or Arkansas facing the Gators in the first game of the event.

The last spot in the SEC Tournament is still up for grabs. Vanderbilt (12-16) will join the field in Hoover, Alabama next week if the Commodores beat Tennessee today, but if Vandy loses Kentucky (11-17) gets in with a win over the Gators since the Wildcats beat the Commodores in their regular season series two games to one.
