College Baseball Rankings: Virginia, South Carolina Battle In Polls

Depending on which college baseball poll one looks at, the top teams will be a scramble of South Carolina, Vanderbilt and Virginia. In Baseball America's Top 25 poll, the Virginia Cavaliers are No. 1 for another week in a row, and they are No. 1 in the USA Today/ESPN Coaches Poll. But the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper moved the South Carolina Gamecocks ahead of Virginia for the No. 1 spot.

The wild card at the top of the rankings is Vanderbilt. While No. 4 in BA's rankings, the Commodores are No. 2 in the Coaches poll and No. 3 in CBN's. Oregon State is also in the mix. OSU's Josh Osich threw a no-hitter on Saturday against then-No. 24 (BA), striking out 13 and walking one. UCLA's Trevor Bauer struck out 15 in loss.

TCU's position has remained constant, placing No. 10 (Coaches) and No. 11 (BA) for another week and dropping one spot to No. 8 in the CBN.
