Texas Tech shoots up the rankings after a successful weekend

Red Raiders jump to 6th in latest poll

NCAA Baseball: College World Series-Coastal Carolina vs Texas Tech Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

D1 Baseball put out their weekly poll this morning, and even though Tech got beat on Friday by Texas A&M, the two wins against Ole Miss and LSU were enough of a showing to impress the pollsters and move the Red Raiders up to 6th place.

Top 10 Rankings - D1 Baseball - March 6th

  1. TCU
  2. Florida
  3. Florida State
  4. Oregon State
  5. Louisville
  6. Texas Tech
  7. LSU
  8. South Carolina
  9. Arizona
  10. Virginia

The Big 12 put a smackdown on the SEC over the weekend, going a combined 7-2 over traditional powerhouses. Ole Miss was swept by TCU, Tech, and Baylor, while last week’s No. 4 school, LSU, only won over Baylor. Baylor is rising in the polls, now at No. 22, while Texas dropped out.

The Big 12 is turning into a powerful baseball conference and proved that this weekend. The Red Raiders have another chance to shine with a midweek matchup against No. 9 Arizona in Lubbock tomorrow night at 6:30 p.m. The game is scheduled to be televised on Fox Sports Southwest Plus.
