Florida State (35-20, 17-13) got blasted in two games over the weekend getting outscored 25-1 in games one and three but winning game two 14-3. The win was not enough to keep FSU’s tenuous grasp on a ranking as FSU fell out of D1Baseball’s top 25. FSU was able to raise their RPI to 50 over the weekend and can improve that even more in the ACC tournament. The ‘Noles will face the No. 18 NC State Wolfpack and No. 57 Wake Forest Demon Deacons. A win in one of those games could go a long way to getting FSU into the NCAA tournament.

Noteworthy

  • Coming into a pivotal series NC State looked a bit shaky and did drop game one to rival North Carolina but the Wolfpack persevered. Scoring 11 runs in each of the next two games NC State easily took the series from the Tar Heels and may have wrapped up a hosting bid in the process. The ACC could end up with four hosting sites and Georgia Tech and Louisville are sure ins while NC State is likely and Miami is possible.
  • Texas A&M may have secured themselves a hosting location by taking a difficult series at home against Arkansas. The Aggies dropped game one but ratcheted up their play and finished off the Razorbacks winning 6-2 and 6-1 to take the series.
  • What a difficult two weeks for Ole Miss. After being ranked 11 the Rebels got swept at home by rival Mississippi State, lost in the mid-week to Arkansas State an then dropped the first two games at Tennessee. Heading into the post season Ole Miss is 1-6 in their last seven. Hosting is probably out of the picture for the Rebels but they’re certainly playing for a better seed this week in the SEC tournament.
