FSU Baseball Up — and Down — in Rankings


The Florida State baseball team dropped a tough series to the No. 1 Virginia Cavaliers this weekend. Their two losses were close (the first requiring extra innings), while their victory was a 7-0 drubbing of the ‘Hoos.

As a result, national pollsters have the ‘Noles heading in different directions in today’s updated polls. The Seminoles fell from No. 5 to No. 6 in the NCBWA poll. They’ve also dropped from fourth to sixth according to Baseball America and Perfect Game. However, FSU has improved per Collegiate Baseball (moving up from No. 6 to No. 5) and the USA Today/ESPN poll (from No. 5 to No. 4).

The polls agree upon one thing: UVA is the top squad in the country. Some also indicate that the Seminoles — a prior No. 1 — may not necessarily be the best team in the state: Collegiate Baseball has Miami ranked over Florida State, and Baseball America and Perfect Game have the Gators ahead of the ‘Noles.

FSU is off until Friday, when it hosts the Minnesota Golden Gophers.
