College Baseball Top 25: Kevin Gausman, LSU Tigers Move To No. 7 In Baseball America Poll

The first weekend of the 2012 college baseball season is in the books and we're already seeing movement in the top 10 of Baseball America's Top 25 poll. The LSU Tigers started the season as the No. 8 team and moved up one spot to No. 7 after defeating the Air Force Falcons (10-2, 4-0) and the Alcorn St. Braves (19-0) during the 2012 LSU Tournament. Denver native Kevin Gausman struck out seven and allowed one run over six innings during the 10-2 victory over the Falcons.

The Florida Gators remained at No. 1 following two of three victories over the Cal State Fullerton Titans. The Titans dropped out of the top 25 and were replaced by the Baylor Bears. The Arizona Wildcats, who play home games at Hi Corbett Field, former spring training home for the Colorado Rockies, took two of three from North Dakota State, but that one loss was an 8-2 home decision.

The No. 2 Stanford Cardinal swept the Vanderbilt Commodores, who fell from No. 10 to No. 17. The UCLA Bruins lost twice to Maryland (2-1, 5-1) and fell from No. 14 to No. 22.
