College Baseball Rankings: Vanderbilt, Virginia Take No. 1 In The Polls

There's a new No. 1 team in college baseball this week. In Baseball America's latest Top 25 rankings, the Vanderbilt Commodores took over the top spot after the former No. 1 Gators dropped two of three from the South Carolina Gamecocks. The Commodores took two of three from the Arkansas Razorbacks over the weekend and won a midweek contest over Tennessee Tech.

The Virginia Cavaliers could challenge for the No. 1 spot if they aren't already. The Cavs completed a three-game sweep of Maryland over the weekend. Staff ace Danny Hultzen is 5-0 in six games. He's allowed 23 hits in 40 1/3 innings and has a strikeout-to-walk ratio of 71:7.

Stetson, Troy, Southern Miss and Alabama were the four new teams to enter BA's rankings this week.

In the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper's Top 25, Virginia emerged as the new No. 1 team, while Vanderbilt remained as the No. 2 team. It is the same result in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Top 25 poll. However, Florida is No. 3 in that one, while No. 4 in the others.

Out of the Mountain West Conference, TCU is No. 15 in BA's poll and No. 14 in the other two. UNLV received seven votes in the Coaches poll.
