College Baseball BCS (May 15)

By Samuel Chi

The polls are a bit divergent this week, with three different teams crowned No. 1 in five polls. But Florida State, on the strength of three No. 1s and solid RPI and ISR scores, retained the top spot in the College Baseball BCS standings for a fourth consecutive week.

The Seminoles are followed by Sunshine State rival Florida, South Carolina, Baylor and Oregon in the top five. The Gamecocks and Ducks each received a No. 1 ranking this week. The Bears, losing their first three Big 12 games this season when they were swept by Oklahoma, fell out of the top five in three polls.

The Titans, who won their 11th consecutive weekend series, fell one spot to No. 12. Fullerton is two spots behind its likely Super Regional foe UCLA and one ahead of Stanford and three ahead of Arizona, two of the teams likely to be sent to the Fullerton Regional as a No. 2 seed.

TCU returns to the top 25, checking in at No. 24, displacing Louisville, last week's No. 24. Gonzaga and St. John's are out of the rankings while Appalachian State and Oklahoma check in.

The conference breakdown: SEC (7), Pac-12 (6), ACC (6), Big 12 (5), Conference USA (3), Big East (1), Big Ten (1), Big West (1), Mountain West (1), Southern (1), West Coast (1), Independent (1).
