Top three remain unchanged, shakeup below in College Baseball Hall of Fame Power Poll
LUBBOCK, Texas – The first three teams in the Week 3 College Baseball Hall of Fame Power Poll remained the same as each had great weekends, but the rest of the Top 10 had some movement.
LSU (10-1) garnered all first-place votes for the fourth straight time this season going 4-0 on the week, beating Texas in a midweek clash and going 3-0 against Butler and Central Connecticut on the weekend. No. 2 Stanford (9-2) and No. 3 Ole Miss (9-2) also remain unchanged, with the Cardinal sweeping Pacific and Cal State Bakersfield, and the defending national champion Rebels going 4-1 with a midweek split with Louisiana Tech and three wins at the Cambria College Classic in Minneapolis, Minn.
Louisville (10-1), which ran roughshod over the field at the Shriners Children’s College Classic with a 3-0 mark, jumps into the No. 4 spot followed by Arkansas (9-2) at No. 5, with the Hogs moving up from No. 6.
The rest of the Top 10 includes No. 6 Florida (10-3), which took two of three from in-state rival Miami, Fla; No. 7 Wake Forest (13-0), one of the few remaining unbeaten teams in the country; No. 8 Tennessee (11-2), which went 5-0 on the week including a weekend sweep of Gonzaga; No. 9 Virginia (11-0), which went undefeated on the weekend and shares the distinction with No. 18 North Carolina State (12-0) as this week’s biggest mover, up five spots; and No. 10 Texas Tech, which drops six spots after going 3-2 on the week and a 1-2 mark at the Shriners Classic.
