2012 SEC Baseball Tournament: Gators Return To Action Against Vanderbilt

After earning a day off with a 6-1 win over the No. 10 Auburn Tigers, the No. 3 Florida Gators return to action as they take on the No. 5 Vanderbilt Commodores on the third day of SEC tournament play. The time of the game depends on when No. 2 South Carolina and Auburn, who start play at 4:30 p.m., finish.

Vanderbilt won their first two games -- against No. 8 Georgia and South Carolina -- so the winner of this matchup will earn a spot in the semifinals on Saturday. The loser will play the winner of today's South Carolina–Auburn game in an elimination game tomorrow. Florida swept the season series against Vanderbilt, winning all three games in Gainesville by a combined score of 23-5 in mid-March.

All SEC tournament games are being played at Region's Park in Hoover, Alabama, and will be televised on SportsSouth, Sun Sports, FOX Sports Southwest, FOX Sports Houston and FOX Sports South in Kentucky.

Today's full SEC schedule:

9:30 a.m.: No. 1 LSU Vs. No. 9 Ole Miss
