Auburn vs. Florida: How to watch the Tigers take on No. 3 Florida

Auburn baseball is once again set to face one of the best teams in the country, this time they are headed to Gainesville to take on the No. 3 Florida Gators. If you’re wondering how you can watch the action live, you’ve come to the right place.

The Tigers (17-7-1, 2-4 SEC) are fresh off a run-rule win over North Alabama on Tuesday. They will look to slow down a Florida (22-4, 5-1) team that has won 13 of their past 14 games and ranks top five in slugging percentage (0.621), batting average (.328), hits (296), home runs (61), and runs (260).

“We’re excited to get what we think is our best lineup back, and now we’re trying to couple that with what we think is our best setup going into a tough environment,” head coach Butch Thompson said. “I can’t wait to get down there and compete against a great ballclub with our lineup intact and a new setup on the mound.”
