College Baseball Rankings: Vanderbilt Remains No. 1

The latest college baseball polls are out and Vanderbilt remains the No. 1 team in the nation in Baseball America's Top 25 poll. They moved up to No. 1 in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Polll over now No. 2 Virginia. While the Coaches Poll had numerous changes in the rankings, Baseball America kept 24 of its top 25 teams (Oklahoma State being the only new team) and the first 17 teams remained in the same order from last week.

Both polls have the same top four teams with Vanderbilt leading the way. Virginia, South Carolina and Florida complete it. The first big discrepancy to appear is with North Carolina. In the Coaches poll, UNC is the No. 7 team in the nation, but BA's top 25 has them at No. 16.

TCU remained No. 15 following their 3-1 record last week. The Horned Frogs lost midweek to Stephen F. Austin, but outscored Air Force 23-9 in a three-game series sweep of the Falcons. TCU starter Kyle Winkler struck out 15 batters in the first game while Matt Purke followed in the next game with eight innings of two-run ball (TCU won that one 3-2).

UNLV had gotten off to a good start but it now 19-10 with a 2-6 Mountain West record (1-1 against Utah with the third game canceled). They did not receive any votes in the Coaches Poll this week.
