The No. 18 Texas A&M baseball (33-12, 11-10) hosts the top-ranked Florida Gators this weekend in a series with NCAA Tournament implications.

The No. 18 Texas A&M (33-12, 11-10) baseball team did exactly what they needed to do in their midweek game, thrashing the Prairie View A&M Panthers 18-1 in a game that was decided by the end of the second inning.

The game was a great showing up and down the lineup, but it did not do a whole lot to prepare them for the incoming No. 1 Florida Gators.

The gap between Prairie View A&M’s pitching staff and an SEC pitching staff is big, but Florida has one of the best staffs in the country. Pulling out a series win should all but secure a spot in the field of 64 when tournament time comes around. More than anything, the Aggies need to at least pick up one win this weekend.

The Aggies have hovered around .500 in conference play for most of the season, and they need to stay at or very near that mark to be sure they get into the tournament.

Game one is Friday at 6:30pm CST and will be broadcast on SEC Network+. Game two will be broadcast on the SEC Network on Saturday at 4pm CST. Game three will be shown nationally on ESPN2 on Sunday at 12pm CST. Projected starters are:
