February 27th, 2023

LUBBOCK, Texas – Despite suffering its first loss of the season, preseason No. 1 LSU remains atop this week’s College Baseball Hall of Fame Power Poll.

The Tigers (6-1) garnered all first-place votes in this week’s poll after going 2-1 at the Karbach Round Rock College Classic in Round Rock, beating Kansas State and Sam Houston State sandwiched around a loss to Iowa. No. 2 Stanford (5-2) and No. 3 Ole Miss (6-1) also remain unchanged, with the Cardinal sweeping Rice and the defending national champion Rebels taking two of three at home from Maryland.

Texas Tech (8-0), off to its best start since 2018, leapfrogs into the No. 4 spot after a weekend sweep of Western Illinois, while Florida (7-1) used a home sweep of Cincinnati to jump into the No. 5 spot.

Louisville (6-1) and Miami, Fla. (7-1) share the distinction of this week’s biggest movers, each jumping four spots this week – the Cardinals to No. 7 and the Hurricanes to No. 9. Rounding out the rest of the top 10 are No. 6 Arkansas (5-2), No. 8 Wake Forest (9-0) and No. 10 Texas A&M (4-3), which holds the distinction of the biggest drop this week after going 1-3 on the week with losses to Lamar and two to Portland.

Two teams make their debut in the poll this week. North Carolina State (7-0), fresh off a 4-0 week and a weekend sweep of Belmont, moves into the poll at No. 23 while fellow Atlantic Coast Conference foe Georgia Tech (7-0) is in at No. 24 after also going 4-0 with a win over Georgia Southern and a sweep of Tennessee Tech.
