Photo Gallery: Florida Gators punch ticket to Omaha

For the ninth time in school history and the fourth time under head coach Kevin O’Sullivan the Florida Gators have punched a ticket to Omaha and the College World Series.

The postseason began with a misstep as a ninth inning home run by the Arkansas Razorbacks landed the Gators in the loser’s bracket of the SEC Tournament. Facing elimination Florida reeled off wins against the Auburn Tigers, Arkansas, LSU Tigers and Vanderbilt to win the SEC Tournament and earn the No. 4 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Riding the momentum of winning four consecutive elimination games, the Gators swept the Gainesville Regional beating FAMU, USF and FAU to earn a trip to the Super Regional where they hosted FSU.

The Noles were no match for the Gators as the Orange and Blue swept Florida State out of Gainesville on the road to Omaha.

Gator Country was on the scene for the Super Regional clinching win and now bring to you a photo gallery with more than 140 photos of the Gators 11-4 win over Florida State.

Nick de la Torre
A South Florida native, Nick developed a passion for all things sports at a very young age. His love for baseball was solidified when he saw Al Leiter’s no-hitter for the Marlins live in May of 1996. He was able to play baseball in college but quickly realized there isn’t much of a market for short, slow outfielders that hit around the Mendoza line. Wanting to continue with sports in some capacity he studied journalism at the University of Central Florida. Nick got his first start in the business as an intern for a website covering all things related to the NFL draft before spending two seasons covering the Florida football team at Bleacher Report. That job led him to GatorCountry. When he isn’t covering Gator sports, Nick enjoys hitting way too many shots on the golf course, attempting to keep up with his favorite t.v. shows and watching the Heat, Dolphins and Marlins.
