KNOXVILLE — Tennessee co-head softball coach Ralph Weekly didn’t get any surprises for his team’s opening game of the Women’s College World Series.

In fact, Weekly already penciled Florida in for Thursday’s game after the Lady Vols advanced Saturday to the WCWS with a 5-3 victory over Alabama in an NCAA Super Regional at Lee Stadium to win the best-of-three series 2-0.

“Guess who we got now?” Weekly said in his post-game press conference. “Florida, first round.”

Weekly was a bit premature.

Florida hadn’t advanced yet.

But the Gators did move into the WCWS against the Lady Vols with a 1-0 victory over UAB (40-19) on Sunday in Gainesville, Fla.
