Florida softball, one year after winning the program’s first national title, has tied the 2011 team for the hottest start in school history with 24 consecutive wins to open the 2015 campaign.
Though the Gators have outscored opponents 193-26 this season – with 11 shutouts – Florida has not achieved this mark without being put through the wringer. UF is 3-0 against teams ranked in the top three nationally with two wins over Michigan and another against Oregon, none of which occurred at home.
The Gators have six more non-conference games to play – including another against the Ducks on Friday – as well as an extremely tough SEC schedule, and though a loss is likely to come sooner than later, UF’s dominance to this point should not be overlooked.
