Georgia is 16-11 in conference play and 38-12 on the season. Georgia is an incredible 28-3 at home and is hoping to host a super regional.

The SEC has four of the five top teams in the country in Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Texas A&M. The SEC continues to be baseball’s best conference. Tennessee remains the nation’s No. 1 team.
