After the dust settled this weekend the TCU Horned Frogs remain at the top of the rankings after an impressive, dominant performance at Minute Maid Park as part of the Shriners Hospitals for Children College Classic. They defeated the previously ranked Nos. 2, 22 and 8 ranked clubs in LSU, Texas A&M and Ole Miss, which included one of the most unlikely comebacks on Saturday over the Aggies in which they were down 10-5 heading into the bottom of the ninth. The TCU pitchers combined to strike out 45 batters, while the Frogs hitters collected 36 base hits. And for good measure, they also beat Rice in a mid-week matchup.

And just when you think the games couldn't get any crazier in Houston, Tucker Cascadden hit a walkoff grand slam to propel Baylor to a 6-3 win over Texas A&M to end the Shriners College Classic.

Clemson won their series against South Carolina in their own dramatic, come-from-behind fashion on Sunday, Louisville remains undefeated at 11-0, Stanford took three of four from Texas at home and East Carolina has gone 8-0 since opening the year 0-3 against the Rebels.

There are a lot of teams knocking at the door to be included for the Top 25, but for this week at least no spot was made available for a new entrant. There is plenty of movement from top to bottom, including a hefty jump by Texas Tech after their own impressive performance in Houston. As detailed in the Weekend Preview, St. John's is making the loudest impression so far this season, but they will have to wait another week to see if they can join the rankings, and Baylor also gets a hard-luck omission after moving to 11-1 on the season in dramatic fashion on Sunday night.

Be sure to check out the Perfect Game College Player Database for detailed scouting reports based on first-hand observations from our scouts. We will continue to add reports on players all week from the teams that participated in the Shriners, Frisco and Dodgertown College Classics.

And don't forget to tune in to Perfect Game College Baseball tonight at a special time due to college basketball – from 11 p.m. - 1 a.m. EST – on SiriusXM College Sports Nation, channel 84. Perfect Game's Daron Sutton and Mike Rooney will wrap up the third weekend of the 2017 college baseball season while taking a look ahead to week four.
