Florida baseball vs Texas A&M score updates in College World Series (2024)

OMAHA, Neb. ― Florida baseball will look to copy prior postseason runs by Fresno State and Ole Miss when it begins College World Series play on Saturday against Texas A&M at Charles Schwab Field.

Ole Miss finished the regular season with a 14-16 conference record and as a regional No. 3 seed won its first national title in 2022.

Fresno State entered the postseason with 32 wins before going 15-3 in its final 18 games to win its only national title at the 2008 CWS.

The Florida Gators (34-28) began postseason play with just 28 wins but won five straight in the Stillwater Regional and Clemson Super Regional to reach the CWS for the 14th time in school history and ninth time under head coach Kevin O'Sullivan.

Florida is 135-86 (.611) all-time in the NCAA Tournament and 25-26 at the College World Series (.490).

The Gators will start freshman righty Liam Peterson (3-4. 5.97 ERA) against Texas A&M lefty Justin Lamkin (2-2, 5.73 ERA).

Texas A&M (49-13) lost two of three games at Florida last Match.

Offensively, Florida has relied on the longball, ranking fifth nationally and fourth in the SEC with 131 home runs (2.1 per game).But the Gators may need to adjust playing in cavernous Charles Schwab Field, with dimensions of 335 down the left field line, 375 feet in the power alleys and 408 feet in center field.
