College baseball composite top 25: Florida's back at No. 1 in Week 7

New, 2 comments

The Gators wrestled the top spot back from A&M with a weekend sweep, making one hell of a statement in the process.

Florida's furlough from the No. 1 spot didn't last very long.

A week after Texas A&M leapfrogged the Gators in the composite rankings (the result of Florida's series loss to Kentucky), Kevin O'Sullivan's team bounced back for a clean sweep of the Aggies. Talk about a statement -- Florida won every game by at least three runs and handed A&M its first series loss of the season, dropping them to 4-5 in SEC play.

That opened the door for Mississippi State to take firm control of the SEC West. Clanga took two of three from previously No. 13 Ole Miss, getting complete games from Dakota Hudson and Austin Sexton on Friday and Saturday. State shot up to No. 6 and the Rebs, which have now lost five of their last six, somehow held steady at No. 13. More good news for Ole Miss: Louisville, who lost a series in Oxford earlier this season, is still hanging out in the top five.

Florida vs. A&M was actually one of three top-10 matchups over the weekend. Miami looks like a bona fide title contender after sweeping then-No. 7 North Carolina and Vandy took two of three from red-hot South Carolina.
