Overview:

FGCU has a huge opportunity this weekend vs a now top 25 ranked FAU team, since they last played the Owls. FAU beat #6 Florida, Wednesday night in extras and it would be a huge opportunity, to take the series this weekend. The Eagles also have played some great baseball since playing FAU, taking 3 out of 4 games vs the University of Kansas. The best part of the series is the Eagles get another chance to play FAU at home in this three game series too.

Prediction:

FGCU takes 2 out of 3 games vs #21 FAU this weekend.
