Florida State was off most of the week but at the very least prevented themselves from being swept by taking game 1 from Clemson in a 13 inning affair. With the series finally tonight the ‘Noles put a new number in front of their name in D1 Baseball’s Top 25 Poll.

Top 25 Poll (with record)

  1. Florida (38-11)
  2. Stanford (37-6)
  3. Oregon State (35-7-1)
  4. North Carolina (32-13)
  5. NC State (34-12)
  6. Ole Miss (36-13)
  7. Arkansas (33-15)
  8. Clemson (35-12)
  9. Southern Miss (35-12)
  10. East Carolina (33-12)
  11. UCLA (30-13)
  12. Texas Tech (35-14)

Dropped out of the Top 25 Indiana — 15, Texas A&M — 21, Vanderbilt — 23


  • The ACC now has 2 top 5 teams, 3 in the top 10 and 5 in the top 15. With the SEC beating each other up the ACC now tops all conferences in all 3 stats.
  • Stetson has now won 7 straight starting with a mid-week win over FSU and recently taking a 2-game rain shortened series against Jacksonville. The Hatters are now ranked 20th and have Florida Gulf Coast up next weekend. It wouldn’t surprise anybody to see Gulf Coast end up as a dangerous 2-seed in Tallahassee or Gainesville.
  • UCLA could not find much of any offense against a desperate Arizona team and dropped all 3 games on the road. Baseball on the west coast has been pretty bad but UCLA had done pretty well even taking a home series against Stanford. With Washington on deck and Oregon State the last series of the year UCLA has chances to host a regional but needs to win those games.

FSU in other polls

Florida State held steady at 16 in Baseball America’s poll.

The ‘Noles also moved up 2 spots to 14 in the NCAA Coaches’ poll.

The Seminoles finish up their 3 game series at Clemson tonight and then host Jacksonville on Wednesday and Mount St. Mary’s for a 4 game weekend (double header on Saturday).
