New, 53 comments

Every week, we average the major polls into a unified top 25.

Following a three-game sweep of then-No. 9 ECU, Ole Miss baseball jumped eight spots from its preseason ranking of No. 22 up to No. 14 in our composite rankings.

What are the composite rankings, you ask? It's a ranking system that averages the top polls from around the country in order to provide one, unified top 25. Each week, we'll combine the polls from D1 Baseball, Baseball America and Perfect Game (and once it resumes later in the season, the USA Today Coaches Poll).

At No. 14, the Rebels are only the fifth-highest ranked club from the SEC. Florida, LSU, South Carolina and Vandy (all of which won their opening series) still hold four of the top eight spots. Texas A&M, which was unranked preseason, becomes the sixth SEC team in the top 25 after blasting Bowling Green by a combined score of 50-7 during a three-game sweep in College Station.
