A notable absence on the list is the Florida Gators. The Tigers came up short in their bid for the CWS title, suffering defeat at the hands of a star-studded Florida Gators team that was fronted by first-round pitcher Alex Faedo.
That means if the purple-and-gold is looking to get revenge against the orange-and-blue, they’ll both have to reach the SEC title game for a matchup at the earliest juncture.
