OMAHA, NEBRASKA (Florida Gators) – The Florida Gators are national champions for the first time in program history.
The Gators’ recipe for success all season paid off once again as UF relied on strong pitching and defense to beat LSU, 6-1, in Game 2 of the 2017 College World Series Finals.
Florida (52-19) went 2-0 in the CWS Finals to defeat LSU (52-20) for the first national title in UF baseball history.
With the title, Florida is one of six schools to win a national championship in baseball, basketball and football, joining Cal, Michigan, Ohio State, Stanford and UCLA. The Gators are the only program to win a title in each sport in the last 50 years. UF won football titles in 1996, 2006 and 2008 and back-to-back basketball titles in 2006 and 2007.
