Texas A&M Baseball Stumbles In Polls, New Texas School Makes An Appearance

Baseball America released it's new top 25 on May 2nd, and it was no surprise that Texas A&M took a fall from its #6 perch. What might be surprising to some is the appearance in the polls of a fifth Texas school.The Aggies lost their mid-week contest to Sam Houston State, and then lost two of three at Missouri over the weekend, leading to a drop from #6 to #9 in the BA top 25. Among the teams benefiting from the fall was Texas-Austin. An impressive series win over Oklahoma and the fall of the Aggies caused the Longhorns to jump up from #7 to #6.

TCU lost a pair of mid-weekers to Dallas Baptist and Oklahoma, but sweeping two games at BYU over the weekend (the third game was canceled due to weather) was impressive enough to keep the Horned Frogs at #11. Moving right up behind them was Conference USA leader Southern Miss, who jumped from #15 to #12.

Rice's baseball team took the week off for finals, which impressed the voters enough to move the Owls up from #25 to #24. Meanwhile, Jeff McVaney homered three times on Sunday, leading Texas State to a series victory over McNeese State. The win improved their season record to 28-16, with a 17-7 mark in Southland Conference play, a good enough mark to see the Bobcats nab the #25 spot in the polls.
