The first rankings from a major publication are in and the Florida Gators are once again highly regarded heading into the 2022 season.

The College Baseball Newspaper announced their top-50 programs (“The Fabulous 50”) heading into the new year and slotted the Gators at No. 6 overall.

Florida is the third SEC team listed, behind just Vanderbilt (No. 2) and LSU (No. 3). In all, ten teams from the conference landed in the top-50, the most of any conference.

This is the fourteenth straight year that Florida was ranked inside the Top-25 in the preseason poll.

The Gators finished 2021 an underwhelming 38-22 before dropping two games in the Gainesville Regional of the NCAA Tournament.

  1. Texas

  3. LSU
  4. Texas Tech
  5. Stanford
  6. Florida
  7. Oklahoma State
