Gainesville, Fla.

The Gators are ranked No. 1 (ESPN.com / USA Softball) and No. 2 (NFCA/USA Today) in this week's polls.

On the heels of their 6-0 start and wins over two ranked teams, Gator Softball climbed two spots to claim the No. 1 ranking in the ESPN.com / USA Softball Collegiate Top 25, announced Tuesday (Feb. 11) by the Amateur Softball Association of America. This week marks Florida’s first No. 1 ranking since Feb. 28, 2011. In addition, UF rose two spots to No. 2 in the USA Today/NFCA poll.

 

Last week, the Gators claimed wins in Tampa, Fla., over then-No. 23/25 USF and then-No. 4/5 Michigan, along with victories against Wisconsin (twice), Illinois State and Bethune-Cookman. This week, the Gators host Jacksonville University on Wednesday before traveling to Las Vegas, Nev., for the Easton Desert Classic. In Las Vegas, the Orange and Blue will face five opponents including No. 24/22 Minnesota and Hawaii, which is receiving votes in this week’s polls.
