How Florida baseball can make the NCAA Tournament

After a 2023 trip to the CWS Finals, Florida baseball’s 2024 season has not gone according to plan. Entering the year ranked No.2 in D1 Baseball’s preseason poll, the Gators hold a 22-21 (9-12 SEC) record with 11 regular season games remaining.

Florida’s postseason hopes are very much in play for two primary reasons. Following the Gators’ game three win over No.2 Arkansas, Kevin O’Sullivan’s ballclub jumped to No.22 in Rating Percentage Index (RPI), which assesses a team’s strength of schedule and ability to secure victories over various levels of competition. The NCAA committee uses this rating system to evaluate teams for the tournament.
