Florida Volleyball will return to the Exactech Arena after grabbing a win on the road against Georgia in straight sets. The Gators (8-5) will begin a two-match series against the Ole Miss Rebels (12-1) this Saturday at 3 p.m. The series finale is set for Sunday at 1 p.m.
A Look at Ole Miss
This week, Ole Miss snapped a 12 game winning streak when they lost to Kentucky, last year’s national champions, in five sets. Ole Miss sits at an even 1-1 record in the SEC as they look to push it to a winning one this weekend with the Gators.
The Rebels bring a few weapons to the Swamp on Saturday. The Ole Miss offense will pose as a threat as their .292% hitting percentage is number one in the conference. Meanwhile, Florida sits just below them in second place at .287%. On the defensive side, libero Sam Burgio has recorded 131 digs this season contributing to the overall 13.22% per set percentage.
A fight to the finish.
