The Florida Gators continue their march to the 2012 College World Series this weekend when they host the N.C. State Wolfpack in the Super Regional round. The winner of this best-of-three series earns one of eight spots in Omaha.
The Gators have been arguably the best team in the country this season and they entered the NCAA tournament as the No. 1 overall seed. Former Colorado Rockies draft pick Preston Tucker is a big reason why -- Tucker is hitting .316/.396/.579 with 15 home runs and 46 RBI for a very potent Gators offense.
N.C. State certainly could prove a challenge, though, and the 'Pack probably has the best starter of the two teams in freshman Carlos Rodon, a 2012 Golden Spikes Award finalist.
Game time/date: 12:00 p.m. MT, Saturday, June 9, 2012
Location: Perry Field at McKethan Stadium, Gainesville, Fla.
