Florida baseball won a critical series against No.9 Georgia to close out their 2024 regular season with 13 conference wins, the benchmark they needed to give them a realistic shot at a postseason bid. Since the SEC expanded to 14 teams in 2013, only Alabama has made a regional while winning fewer than 13 regular-season SEC games (12-17).

Since 2013, SEC teams that have logged 13 regular season wins have a 5-12 success rate in terms of regional bids (41.6%). 14 regular season wins increases your chances to 75%.

Historically speaking, Florida’s odds of making the tournament are still stacked against them, but that is likely not the case in 2024 as five SEC teams are tied at 13 conference wins (Vanderbilt, South Carolina, Florida, LSU, and Alabama).
