More than three months still separate us from the NCAA postseason, but it’s never too early to earn a marquee series win -- even if it was opening weekend.

Stanford might just have the nation’s most difficult non-conference schedule. But it began the season in the best way possible with a dominant series win over highly regarded Vanderbilt.

The Cardinal wasn’t the only team that made a big-time statement this past weekend.

Santa Clara, coached by first-year skipper Dan O’Brien, made a huge statement down in the Lone Star State, while fellow California programs Cal Poly and USC also recorded important series wins. Meanwhile, Florida Atlantic earned a road series win that could really bolster their resume come May.

On the winless side of things, Wichita State and Alabama would prefer to forget about opening weekend after each failing to win a game, while San Diego, UCLA and St. John’s didn’t fare much better.

We breakdown the teams that helped and hurt their cases the most, while also giving you the 10 most important things we learned from opening weekend.
