The No. 1-ranked team on the list, all the way from Gainesville, Florida, is the University of Florida Gators. Coming from arguably the best conference in baseball in the SEC, the Gators have played amazing the whole season.
The Gators come into the CWS with an impressive résumé and 50-17 record. They tied for the 2011 SEC regular season championship and were the 2011 SEC tournament champion, as well as the nation's team HR leader.
Along with the Virginia Cavaliers, the Gators also held the No. 1 spot in the rankings for a long period of time.
With a team that can outhit anyone in the nation, led by star catcher Mike Zunino, who led the team with a .376 batting average and 18 home runs, the Gators are back at the CWS and ready to avenge their quick two-and-out performance from last year.
Not only that, closer Austin Maddox will be back from his foot injury, and it couldn't be better for the Gators. Maddox's 0.74 ERA will be a crucial part for the Gators to get far in the tournament.
With the steady pitching the Gators have shown throughout the year and the humongous power they are armed with, teams will find out just how hard it is to control a team like the Gators. Ranked first in HR and second in hits, the Gators have a team that can put up 10 runs very easily.
However, the Gators will have a tough first-round game against the Big 12 hopeful Texas Longhorns.
