Saturday Recap: Cardinals sweep Irish


For the third consecutive week there wasn't a lot of shake up to the PG's Top 25, as for the most part the teams already ranked won as expected, especially those at the top. The top three teams – Florida, Vanderbilt and Texas A&M – continue to roll in impressive fashion and retain the top three spots in the rankings. Louisville, who opened the year ranked second, did leap-frog Oregon State to claim the No. 4 spot after sweeping Notre Dame rather handily.

After their impressive three-game sweep of Oregon in Starkville, Mississippi State moves up to the 15th spot while the Ducks fell to 16th. And Perfect Game would like to welcome Clemson to the rankings after taking their three game series against Wake Forest to open ACC play. The series win for the Tigers comes one week after they did the same with their in-state rival South Carolina Gamecocks.

The Ragin' Cajuns were removed from the Top 25 rankings after going 2-2 on the week, however, that in itself didn't lead to the decision. The big picture look and their overall strength of schedule are what weighed the most on the decision, especially after dropping a midweek contest to Tulane, one of their tougher opponents, which came a little over a week after they went 1-2 at the Houston College Classic.

Perfect Game College Baseball returns to the airwaves tonight from 9-11 p.m. EST on SiriusXM College Sports Nation, channel 84. Perfect Game's Daron Sutton and Mike Rooney will wrap up the weekend that was.


Also considered:
Boston College, BYU, Cal State Fullerton, East Carolina, Florida Atlantic.
