Florida Vs. South Carolina, 2012 CWS: Gators In Rematch Of 2011 National Champsionship

The Florida Gators, the No. 1 overall seed, head into the College World Series undefeated in the NCAA tournament. They'll get right into it, though, taking on conference rival -- and two-time defending national champion -- South Carolina in a rematch of last year's national championship on Saturday at 9:00 p.m. ET on ESPN.

In last year's national championship, the Gamecocks swept the Gators in the best-of-three series. In this year's regular season series, Florida took two of three from South Carolina in Columbia. South Carolina, a No. 1 seed like Florida, is also undefeated thus far in the NCAA tournament.

The winner of the Gators–Gamecocks matchup will take on the winner of No. 2 Arkansas and No. 3 Kent State. The losers will also play each other in an elimination game. All CWS games will be televised on ESPN or ESPN2, as well as ESPN3.com. All games will be played at TD Ameritrade Park Omaha.
