College Baseball Top 25 Rankings: Week 8

MLB Diamond’s College Baseball Top 25 Rankings for Week 8 have been released. Our number one stays the same but what about the rest?

The Baltimore Ravens come into week four with their much-anticipated matchup between the Buffalo Bills. With both teams having championship aspirations, this could be a preview of a future playoff matchup.

Week 8 brought us another crazy week of college baseball. We would not have it any other way. Here is our College Baseball Top 25 Rankings for Week 8.

Tennessee continues to dominate the college baseball landscape and will ride a 23 game win streak into Week Nine. Eight teams out of the top 25 had a perfect week; Alabama, Dallas Baptist, LSU, UCONN, Southern Miss, Notre Dame, Oregon State, Miami and, of course, Tennessee. All eight of those teams either saw big jumps in rakings or stayed where they were as a top 5 team.

Disaster

Incredibly, some teams had disaster filled weeks. The University of Virginia met it’s match against Miami and was swept by the Hurricanes. Ole Miss spent too much time pregaming at The Grove and wound up with a winless week against Southern Miss and Alabama.

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish showed up big. In their midweek clash against Butler, the Irish won 5-2. In a three game series against Clemson, Notre Dame took all three games. The Irish pitching staff only allowed five runs over three games while their offense put up an impressive 21 runs.

The Bottom

Vanderbilt seems to be struggling a bit after going 2-2 this week. Despite winning decisively at Austin Peay, 12-2, the Commodores struggled against Auburn losing 5-1 and 8-2 on Friday and Sunday respectively. Vandy sandwiched a 19-4 Saturday win between their book end losses.

Dallas Baptist is a team to keep an eye on. Sophomore Ryan Worbleski had himself a weekend compiling six runs, five doubles, two homeruns and seven runs batted in while going 8-12 from the plate. DBU is rocking a five game win streak after two embarrassing losses to Wofford a weekend prior.
