College Baseball BCS (May 8)

By Samuel Chi

There isn't a lot of shakeups near the top of this week's Baseball BCS standings, as Florida State holds the No. 1 spot for the third straight week. The Seminoles are a unanimous No. 1 choice of all five polls and rank No. 1 in the ISR and No. 2 in the RPI.

Baylor is second, followed by a trio of SEC teams - Florida, South Carolina and LSU - followed by another Lone Star entry in Rice. Oregon, at No. 7, is the highest ranked West Coast team.

The Titans just missed being in the top 10, thanks to the continued low rankings in the USA Today coaches poll and NCBWA poll. UCLA checks in at No. 9 and Stanford at No. 13.

No new teams made it into the top 25, but several first-time entries are lurking. TCU is back in the picture at No. 26 and Dallas Baptist makes its BCS debut at No. 27.

The conference breakdown: SEC (7), Pac-12 (6), ACC (6), Big 12 (4), Conference USA (3), WCC (2), Big East (2), Big Ten (1), Big West (1), Mountain West (1), Independent (1).
