Florida expects to sell out student season tickets by ECU; Gators pay high costs for football

Football season ticket sales, particularly for the school’s student population, have been an issue for the Florida Gators as of late, but the program expects to sell out its student season ticket allotment ahead of the East Carolina game on Sept. 13, executive associate athletics director Mike Hill told OnlyGators.com on Tuesday.

After selling out its allotment of student season tickets for the first 21 years of Hill’s career with the program, the Gators failed to do so in 2014. Florida now says it is on pace to sell out its student season tickets in 2015, though it is not there just yet.

Takeaways: No. 4 Florida Gators baseball advances to Super Regional with 2-1 win over FAU

By Andrew Olson – OnlyGators.com baseball writer

For the first time since 2012, No. 4 Florida Gators baseball (47-16) has returned to the Super Regionals after defeating the Florida Atlantic Owls 2-1 in the Gainesville Regional portion of the 2015 NCAA Tournament behind a strong outing from freshman right-handed pitcher Alex Faedo (6.0 IP, 3 H, ER, BB, 6 K).

UF trailed on Sunday at McKethan Stadium for the first time this weekend when FAU took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning. Senior third baseman Josh Tobias (3/4, R) scored Florida’s first run when Florida Atlantic second baseman Stephen Kerr booted a ground ball hit by freshman catcher JJ Schwarz (1/4, RBI). In the sixth inning, Schwarz collected a legitimate RBI on a single to left field that scored junior shortstop Richie Martin (0/3, R, BB).

The Gators were one inning away from winning the regional before lightning in the area stopped play for 67 minutes. The delay ended an impressive relief outing from senior left-handed pitcher Bobby Poyner (2.0 IP, 2 H, 4 K). Junior RHP Taylor Lewis (1.0 IP, H) successfully closed out the ninth, punching Florida’s ticket to the Super Regional, which it will play in for the fifth time in the last seven seasons.

Here are three takeaways from the Gators’ big win:
