SEC West opponents Arkansas, LSU, and Mississippi State had tough weeks. The Bulldogs went 2-3, losing a road series to Long Beach State, the Razorbacks went winless in Houston at the Shriners College Classic at Minute Maid Park, and LSU struggled in Houston, too, getting no-hit by Oklahoma in their finale.
Other future opponents that had notable weeks are the Georgia Bulldogs, who swept in-state rival Georgia Tech on the way to a perfect 4-0 week, and the Auburn Tigers who continue to rip the cover off the baseball en route to their own 4-0 week.
The SEC naturally leads everyone with a whopping nine(!) teams in the Top 25 poll while the ACC is second with five.
