The latest college baseball Top 25 polls are out and the Virginia Cavaliers are now No. 1 in three major polls. In Baseball America's rankings and in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll, the Cavaliers continue to hold the top spot for another week in a row. The Collegiate Baseball Newspaper held out on Virginia last week when it had the South Carolina Gamecocks at No. 1, but this week CBN's Top 25 has Virginia at the top.
What caused South Carolina to drop from No. 1 to No. 4? Despite winning a midweek game against Wofford, the Gamecocks lost two of three to the Ole Miss Rebels (27-21). South Carolina dropped to No. 4 in BA's and CBN's rankings and stayed put at No. 3 in the Coaches poll. Oregon State and Vanderbilt float around in the top five of the polls, though in the Coaches poll they are tied for seventh with fellow Pac-10 team, Arizona State.
In Mountain West Conference news, the TCU Horned Frogs are as high as No. 8 in CBN's rankings and No. 10 in both BA and the Coaches polls. TCU swept their three-game series with the Air Force Falcons back at the start of April. Over the weekend, the Horned Frogs played an out-of-conference series with the Oklahoma State Cowboys and took two of three games. Zac Jordan's 10th inning homer proved to be the game-winner for the Horned Frogs on Sunday.
The NCAA Baseball Tournament Selection Show takes place on May 30 at 10:30 a.m. MT on ESPN.
