College baseball top 25, Week 3: The SEC had a rough weekend

Florida was the conference’s only ranked team to win a series.

NCAA Baseball: College World Series-LSU vs TCU Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

Last weekend’s Shriners College Classic in Houston was supposed to be the SEC’s shot at redemption after its record field of NCAA Tournament teams wiped out last summer. Instead, it was the Big 12 walking away with bragging rights. Then-No. 4 LSU and No. 20 Texas A&M both went 1-2; No. 17 Ole Miss went 0-3. TCU, meanwhile, ripped through the weekend undefeated to maintain its unanimous No. 1 ranking, while No. 18 Texas Tech and Baylor went 2-1 apiece. The final score: Big 12 7 wins, SEC two.

The SEC’s rough weekend wasn’t confined to Houston, though. South Carolina lost a series to rival Clemson, Arkansas went 1-2 at the Frisco Classic and Vandy dropped two of three to whatever the hell Cal State University-Northridge is.

All of that means a bit of a shakeup in this week’s rankings. The conference still has three teams in the top 10 and six total in the top 25, but LSU, South Carolina, Ole Miss, A&M and Vandy all fell.
