Thursday RecapFriday Recap | Video Vault


If anything was proven this weekend it was that the top five teams in college baseball are very clear. However you rank those top five (as shown below) is really irrelevant as the postseason is set to begin, with three of those teams (LSU, Illinois, TCU and Louisville) earning the No. 1 seed in their respective conference championships. UCLA of course would make it a perfect 5-for-5 if the Pac-12 had a conference tournament.

However, UCLA did clinch the Pac-12 with their win, and series sweep, over Arizona on Sunday (along with USC's loss to Cal), and therefore have officially secured a spot in the postseason.

Speaking of the conference tournaments, Perfect Game will release a comprehensive listing of all 25 championships including the who/what/where/when of each event. In addition to the Pac-12, the Big West also does not have a conference tournament, while the champions of The Ivy League (Columbia), MEAC (Florida A&M), Patriot League (Lehigh) and SWAC (Texas Southern) have already been determined. Congratulations to those four clubs for advancing to Regional play.


Also considered:
Cal State Fullerton, Indiana, Notre Dame, Southern Miss, Virginia.
