FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The No. 23-ranked Arkansas Razorbacks softball team will look to salvage one win from its weekend series against the No. 2 Florida Gators on Sunday afternoon at Bogle Park.
The Gators (32-2, 9-1 SEC) opened the series with the Razorbacks (22-11, 2-9 SEC) with a 6-1 win on Friday, then won 8-0 in 5 innings on Saturday. With those losses, Arkansas still hasn’t won a softball series against Florida since 2007.
In Saturday’s defeat, Arkansas was held to just 2 hits by Florida pitcher Delaney Gourley.

What you should know
Arkansas getting good at bouncing back
Arkansas began this season with a 19-1 record, its best 20-game start in program history. The Razorbacks hit a rough stretch, though, once SEC play started. Arkansas was swept in 2 of its 3 weekend series, but also won a 3-game series against Tennessee two weeks ago, a major sign of progress. The Razorbacks are seeking their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2013.
Canfield shooting for history
Senior Stephanie Canfield is third in Arkansas program history with 221 hits. She needs 6 more hits to tie Jessica Bachkora’s program record, set from 2007-10. Canfield entered the Florida series with at least one hit in the Razorbacks’ previous 7 games, but is hitless against the Gators.
