    Link to Pink Features No. 2 Florida and No. 12 Auburn
    The 13th Annual Gators Link to Pink presented by UF Health features the two remaining teams undefeated in SEC action - No. 2 Florida and No. 12 Auburn.
    Mary Howard UF Sports
    Gators in Last Friday's Meet:
    Big scores and a big crowd came together in the first regular-season dual meet between the nation's top two teams since 2014 when No. 2 Florida visited No. 1 Oklahoma last Friday. OU used 2019's top score of 198.325 to take the win over Florida, who turned in its season-best of 198.025 in front of a Lloyd Noble Center record crowd of 5,082. There's been five dual meets in NCAA history with both teams scoring 198-plus - Florida's been in each of the last four.

    SEC Awards for the Gators:
    After their performances Friday, Baumann and Thomas claim SEC Weekly honors. Her two collegiate-best marks at Oklahoma – including sharing the beam win at 9.975 - gave Baumann the Feb. 5 SEC Specialist Gymnast of the Week award.

    Gators with extra motivation tonight
    By Gvl Sun gatorsports
    By Jim Harvin, Correspondent
    The No. 12 Auburn Tigers visit the Exactech Arena at the O’Connell Center this evening to face the No. 2 Florida Gators as the only two remaining unbeaten teams in Southeastern Conference gymnastics action square off at 6:45 p.m.

    This is also UF’s 13th Link to Pink event, so there is a little something extra on the line as well.
    “Being back in the O-Dome is a really huge deal,” UF coach Jenny Rowland said. “To be here for the Link to Pink Meet is for a greater cause. It’s a really special evening for this team, knowing there are a lot of survivors that are close to these young women’s hearts as well as those who unfortunately did not win that battle. It’s always great to go out and compete for something bigger than themselves, and this team takes a lot of pride in this event.”

    The Gators (3-1, 3-0 SEC) are coming off a strong effort at No. 1 Oklahoma, in which Florida fell by a mere .30 of a point, 198.325-198.025, last Friday.

    Gators Take Win over Auburn in Meet Between SEC Unbeatens
    Florida won tonight's meet between Southeastern Conference unbeaten teams - Gators 197.85 - Auburn 196.70.
    Mary Howard UF Sports
    Florida's 197.85 stands as the nation's No. 6 total of the season and is UF's second-highest for 2019. Auburn's 196.70 is just off its season-best of 196.775 set Jan. 25 in its win over Georgia.

    Tonight's Exactech Arena crowd of 9,055 for the 13th Annual Gators Link to Pink is Florida's season-high and ranks as the ninth largest in program history.
    TONIGHT'S MEET
    Florida opened the meet with a season-best 49.35 on vault, but trailed the Tigers by 0.025 heading into the second rotation. Senior Alicia Boren won the evening's vault title with a Gator season-best 9.925. Freshmen Savannah Schoenherr and Trinity Thomas shared second with Auburn's Derrian Gobourne at 9.90.

    That deficit was quickly closed on the second rotation, as Florida pushed out a 0.475 lead at the meet's midway point. Thomas claimed her third bars title of the season at 9.95. Junior Amelia Hundley shared second with Auburn's Abby Milliet at 9.90.
