With just over a month away from conference tournaments, the top twenty-five continues to witness the rise and fall of power programs. This week, the Big 12 added a fourth representative to the equation as West Virginia joined the top twenty-five for the first time in school history. Behind series wins against three ranked foes, the Mountaineers jump to No. 21 according to Baseball America.
They join the Texas Tech Red Raiders, TCU Horned Frogs, and Oklahoma Sooners as the representatives hoping for a shot at the national title from the Big 12 Conference. Without any further ado, here are the complete Baseball America rankings.
|8||Cal State Fullerton||23-11||8|
|12||Long Beach State||22-12||12|
Suffering six losses over the past seven games, the Sooners have plummeted down to No. 19 marking the biggest drop of the week from the group. There’s still plenty of baseball left to be played though. Looking to recoup from a four game skid, OU takes on Dallas Baptist in a midweek showdown before hosting Kansas in Norman.
Looking down a bit further, Oklahoma will still see two currently ranked opponents on the diamond before the end of the regular season. It should provide an opportunity to bolster the resume a bit more. However, the inverse is also true when it comes to that statement.
