The Florida Gators released their 2021 baseball schedule on Tuesday. While the opponents aren’t much of a surprise, the timing of the annual series with Miami is.

The Gators will also face Florida State three times this year with each team hosting a game and the third being played in Jacksonville, per usual.
Florida will face ten SEC teams (30 games) with Texas A&M, Mississippi, Missouri, Vanderbilt, and Georgia coming to Gainesville.
The Gators enter the 2021 season as the No. 1 team in the nation following a 16-1 campaign a year ago before the season ended due to Covid. Largely, Florida returns the entirety of it’s roster from a year ago and adds one of the top recruiting classes in the nation.
