College Baseball Rankings – 2023 Top 25 Poll

It will take a long time to unseat LSU from the No. 1 ranking, but the Tigers continue to prove they are the best team in the country. In four games last week, they scored 44 runs, 26 of which came in one game. They are the real deal.

Elsewhere in college baseball, things are heating up this week as conference play begins in some leagues.

Last week’s key game: Florida 14, Miami 4 After allowing Miami to extend its lead in Saturday’s game, Florida gave up Wyatt Langford. He hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the eighth to cap off a remarkable week of play that earned him SEC Player of the Week honors (500/.560/1.200 with five HRs over five starts). Miami fell out of the Top 25 after a weekend series loss to the Gators.

Key Game to Watch: NC State at Miami on Friday, March 10 (7 p.m. ET on ACC Network). NC State has a perfect 12-0 record to start the cause, and Miami could be one of the Wolfpack’s first real tests entering conference play. Miami will certainly be looking to bounce back from the loss at Florida, and that should give us a clear idea of ​​the strength of the ACC this year.

Key player to watch: Cannon Peebles, USA. Can Peebles follow up his six-hit, 10-RBI weekend? Peebles had a bit of a slow start to the season, but he may have just found his groove. The Wolfpack have one more game before their series with Miami, giving Peebles another chance to improve their game before traveling to Coral Gables.

Game of the Week: Colby Shelton has real power in his swing.
