At the close of regular season college baseball and the start of conference tournaments, the Virginia Cavaliers were unable to hold onto the No. 1 spot in any of the polls. The Cavaliers lost all three games to the North Carolina Tar Heels last week, while the new No. 1, South Carolina, took two of three from the Alabama Crimson Tide.
In Baseball America's Top 25 and the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper poll, the Cavaliers fell to No. 5. In the ESPN/USA Today Coaches poll, the Cavs dropped just two spots to No. 3. South Carolina came in at No. 1 in all the three, while Florida, Texas and Vanderbilt all check in at various spots to fill out the rest of the top five positions. Previously No. 2, the Oregon State Beavers lost two of three to the USC and fell to sixth in the BA and CBN polls.
The TCU Horned Frogs stayed at Nos. 7 and 10 in the CBN and BA polls, respectively, while moving up two spots to No. 7 in the Coaches poll. They swept New Mexico to close out the regular season. They are the No. 1 seed in the Mountain West tournament.
