Tuesday will be a busy day in the SEC as eight teams take to the field to take on nonconference opponents.

The best game of the night is an in-state, Top 25 matchup between fifth-ranked Florida and 23rd-ranked USF. The Gators have won nine straight games and are looking hot at just the right time. They currently sit atop the SEC East with a 16-8 record against conference opponents. The player to watch in this matchup will be Christian Hicks, who is hitting .342 since March 10th, including a two-home run performance against Jacksonville last week.

The next game to watch will be when the second-place Kentucky Wildcats take on Indiana at home. The Wildcats currently sit one-game behind Florida in the SEC East and have been struggling a bit as of late, dropping three of their last five. The player to watch in this one is Evan White, who is leading the team with a .391 batting average this season.

The third big game on the night sees Vanderbilt heading on the road to face second-ranked Louisville. The Commodores are currently sitting 3.5 games back of the Gators for the top spot in the East. Louisville comes into the matchup with a 28-2 record at home, so Vandy has their work cut out for them. The player to watch in this one is Drew Ellis, who was named the ACC Player of the Month, after hitting .455 in the month of April.

There is still more on the slate for Tuesday including Tennessee hosting Belmont and South Carolina hosting Presbyterian. Georgia will host in-state rival Georgia Tech and No. 11 LSU will host South Alabama. The only SEC team to go on the road on Tuesday will be No. 14 Auburn, who will head to UAB to face the Blaze at 7:30.
