Florida Vs. South Carolina, 2012 CWS Game Preview: Gators Looking To Top Gamecocks

In a battle of two teams from the SEC with a lot of baseball history, the Florida Gators and South Carolina Gamecocks will face off on Saturday night in the 2012 College World Series.

Florida and South Carolina met in March during the 2012 SEC baseball regular season and the Gators took two of the three meetings between the two teams, although the Gamecocks did combine to score 13 runs to Florida's 16 during their series.

In 2011, South Carolina swept Florida and won their second straight national championship.

The Gators Mike Zunino will be relied upon to lead Florida to victory. The All-American catcher and the 2011 SEC player of the year has led Florida to three consecutive College World Series berths.

The Gators opened the season No. 1 in all four polls and are now a top-seed in Omaha as well.
