Overview:

Both teams had a strong first series of the year, winning their respective  series’. FAU offensively scored 38 runs in 3 games vs #24 UCF, but their pitching ERA was pretty high (11.67 ERA), since the Golden Knights scored 36 runs off of their pitching staff.

FAU and FGCU faced each other last season, and the Eagles lost on the road, 6-4. Two teams that can score runs should lead to a fun Tuesday night tilt at Swanny!

Prediction:

Beating FAU and starting the year, 4-0, would be a great start to the season!
