Top 25 Upsets
• North Florida became the first team to score double-digit runs against No. 1 Florida this year, toppling the Gators 10-5 in Jacksonville. Karsten Whitson returned to action for Florida and struck out two in a perfect first inning, but the Ospreys jumped on the UF bullpen for four runs in the second and never looked back. T.J. Gavlik (2-for-4, 3 RBI) and Michael Wesner (3-for-4, 2 R) led UNF's 13-hit attack.
• Sam Houston State extended its winning streak to nine games with a 2-1 win at No. 9 Rice. Michael Oros picked up the win with five scoreless innings, and John Hale's RBI double highlighted SHSU's decisive two-run second against Austin Kubitza (3 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 2 K), who fell to 2-3. John Simms, Jordan Stephens and Tyler Duffey followed with six combined innings of one-hit relief, but the damage was done.
• Oregon State won a nice intra-state matchup against Portland, 8-2. Tyler Smith and Michael Conforto extended their hitting streaks to eight games apiece, and Smith drove in three to lead the OSU offense.
• Freshman Daniel Gossett (7 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 13 K) was overpowering in Clemson's 11-0 win against Winthrop.
• Nebraska improved to 3-0 in midweek games against Kansas State with a 6-0 win in Manhattan. Tyler King (4 IP, 1 H, 0 R) and four relievers combined on a four-hit shutout for the Huskers, who improved to 20-11.

It was the 14th straight win for the Aggies, and the fifth in a row against the Lobos dating back to 2010. Zac Fisher went 3-for-4 to lead New Mexico State's 12-hit attack in support of Adam Mott (6 IP, 8 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 4 K).
