College Baseball Rankings 2012: LSU Remains At No. 13 In Latest Baseball America Top 25 Poll

The latest Baseball America Top 25 Poll has seen several substantial changes this week, but not at the very top of it. The Florida Gators, home to former 2011 Colorado Rockies draft pick Preston Tucker, remain the No. 1 team in the nation with a 15-1 record, going 5-0 last week. The Stanford Cardinal is still the No. 2 team after dropping only one game to the now No. 8 Rice Owls over the weekend. Defending College World Series champion South Carolina and Arkansas complete the unchanged top four.

The Texas A&M Aggies fell from No. 6 to No. 10 after losing two games to the Cal State Fullerton Titans over the weekend. Ross Stripling, Rockies' ninth rounder in 2011 and senior returnee, allowed five runs (four earned) in a no-decision. He struck out seven, surrendered six hits, hit two batters and committed a balk.

The LSU Tigers are stuck at No. 13 following a 3-1 week, the only loss coming against Notre Dame. Denver native Kevin Gausman, though, threw a gem of eight shutout innings, allowing just two hits and striking out 11. He is 4-0 with a 1.32 ERA and 31 strikeouts to two walks.

Right behind the Tigers are the No. 14 Miami Hurricanes, home to the Rockies' 2011 third-round selection Peter O'Brien. He was 2-for-10 with a two RBI and a double over the weekend.
