Florida didn’t know which teams it would be facing on the diamond in 2021 until Jan. 14.

Following the unveiling of its SEC slate Jan. 15, UF’s complete 48-game schedule was released Friday.

The Gators’ season will begin against a foe it has battled against every year since 1997: the USF Bulls. UF hasn’t lost to the Bulls since 2013 and will bring its 17-game winning streak to Tampa for a weekend series Feb. 12.

After a three-game set against USF, Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium will see action for the first time in almost a year during a date with Jacksonville Feb. 17.

The following weekend, Florida will host the Bubly Invitational, which will feature a trio of games against Georgia Southern Feb. 19-21 and Charlotte Feb. 20-21.

Nine more non-conference games will follow – including the traditional home-and-home fixtures against FSU on March 5-6 – before the first SEC game against Kentucky March 12.

During the SEC season, the Gators will still have a sprinkling of games against schools, such as UCF and FGCU, before ending the regular season facing Texas A&M May 9.

In total, 24 of UF’s contests will be played outside the SEC. Ticket and stadium capacity information will be announced at a later date.
