Gainesville Super Regional Prediction: Florida Gators vs Miami Hurricanes

The Miami Hurricanes and Florida will meet for a best of three series for their right to move onto Omaha and the College World Series. These two teams met for a series earlier in the season with the Gators taking two of three in Miami.

Florida swept their regional with ease last weekend, while Miami needed a game 7 before dispatching Texas A&M.

Miami is going for a 24th College World Series appearance and their 12th in the last 17 years.

Florida’s success is much more recent making its fourth Super Regional appearance all in the last seven years. The Gators are 28-9 on the home field in NCAA Tournament play, but Miami has ended Florida’s season eight different times.

This is one of three ACC vs SEC Super Regional matchups. So far FSU is up 1-0 on Vanderbilt after a 9-8 win today.

The SEC went 2-1 in Regional finals against the ACC. The ACC has a total of 4 Super Regional teams and three are hosting. The SEC has 4 teams as well and is hosting one Super Regional.

Prediction: Florida in 3 games
