Pitcher/DH Brian Johnson had a monster week, hitting .471 (8-for-17) and driving in seven runs in the four games and also pitching six scoreless innings in Sunday's 8-1 victory over the Vols to earn SEC Player of the Week honors.

Florida is second in the SEC's Eastern Division and trails leader Kentucky (32-5, 11-4) by two games.
