FSU baseball still in top-10 after up and down week

Despite going 2-2, ’Noles maintain their lofty ranking.

NCAA Baseball: Troy at Florida State Joe Rondone-USA TODAY Sports

FSU won it’s first ACC series of the year taking 2 games from the Notre Dame Irish. They were .500 for the week due to a mid-week loss to UF but FSU did not see a change in it’s place in polls. D1 Baseball prizes weekend series over mid-week match ups which is a major reason the ‘Noles maintained their spot. This makes sense as single games, which is usually what mid-week games are, are high variance ventures in baseball.

Top 25 Poll (with record)

  1. Oregon State 18-1
  2. Florida 18-4
  3. Stanford 14-2

  7. Florida State 16-4
  8. Vanderbilt 15-5
  9. Auburn 19-2
  10. Texas Tech 17-5

Dropped out of the Top 25 (Mississippi — 19)

Noteworthy

  • NC State is the big riser this week jumping 11 spots after sweeping Clemson in South Carolina (their fist road series of the year).
  • Wake Forest nabbed another game on a walk-off HR against Louisville and pulled out a series win. If the Deacs keep this up they’ll surely be ranked. Early season losses have them still under .500 but at 4-2 in conference they sit just behind NC State.
  • FSU’s next opponent, UCF, dropped a mid-week game to Miami but returned home to sweep Chicago State, who’s now lost 11 straight.

FSU in other polls

Baseball America bumped FSU up 1 in the polls to put them at 5.

Just like D1 baseball the Coaches Poll kept FSU steady at 7.

FSU hosts UCF for a 2 game set before traveling to North Carolina for a marquee matchup against a pre-season top 25 team fresh off a sweep against Pittsburgh
