First game of series with LSU suspended due to rain: The first game of this weekend's series between the No. 1 Gators and the Tigers was suspended due to rainy weather.

Florida is the only team in the SEC that controls its destiny for the regular-season title: But several other teams still have an opportunity. The Gators will be SEC champs if they sweep the Tigers. LSU also has the opportunity to take the crown but, in addition to sweeping Florida, would need South Carolina to lose once and Texas A&M and Mississippi State to each lose twice. Texas A&M defeated Ole Miss last night. The Aggies can win the SEC if they sweep the Rebels and the Gators lose one game. Mississippi State also has a shot. The Bulldogs need to sweep Arkansas and have both Florida and Texas A&M lose a game in order to win the SEC. For South Carolina to win the SEC, they need to sweep Alabama, have both Florida and Texas A&M lose twice, and have Mississippi State lose once. (Gainesville Sun)
