OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Defending champion South Carolina and Florida are getting set for an all-Southeastern Conference championship round at the College World Series beginning Monday night.

The Gamecocks (53-14) and Gators (53-17) shared their division title. Florida won the conference tournament, and South Carolina has rolled off a record 14 consecutive NCAA tournament victories.

South Carolina won two of three games against Florida in March.

Florida hasn't announced a starting pitcher for Game 1. Hudson Randall (11-3) and Karsten Whitson (8-0) could go.

Gamecocks coach Ray Tanner said he's leaning toward starting Forrest Koumas (6-1). Tanner said he's scrambling to figure out his pitching after closer Mike Roth had to work a season-high 5 2-3 innings against Virginia on Friday.
