Florida softball wants Women's College World Series, baseball another SEC title

PodKATT of ATVS

Florida has a great chance at a really good Sunday on a pair of diamonds.

If all goes well, Florida's stick-and-ball teams could earn a pass to the final stage of their sport and the nation's No. 1 seed by the end of Sunday.

In Gainesville, Florida's softball team is one win away from a berth in the Women's College World Series after destroying Washington, 9-0, on Saturday. All the Gators have to do on Sunday is win one of two from the Huskies, in games that will take place at noon and 3 p.m. (if necessary) and will be broadcast on ESPN and ESPN3.

And that seems likely.

At the SEC Tournament, Florida's Saturday win over Kentucky got the Gators a chance to go up against white-hot LSU. LSU has decimated its competition all week in Hoover, run-ruling Vanderbilt and Arkansas and picking up another lopsided win over the Razorbacks en route to the final.

There's no need for the Gators to beat LSU twice to eliminate the Tigers on Sunday, not in the tournament's "championship game," so Florida definitely does have a puncher's chance at beating the Tigers. But I wouldn't bet on it: Even though Florida's fifth game in five days, and LSU's fourth, would seem tailor-made for a bullpen duel, the Gators just aren't quite as hot as LSU.

That game will air on ESPN2 and ESPN3 at 4:30 p.m. Eastern.

Feel free to use this as the open thread for those games and anything else on this fine Sunday. I'll be watching my brother graduate from college and won't be around, but I should have some writeups on both games for either the late evening or Monday morning.
