LSU drops precipitously in On3’s national baseball power rankings amid 4-game losing streak

LSU had a nice start to the season as the defending national champions, but since SEC play began, it’s been a rough go of things.

The Tigers are 0-3 in SEC series, most recently being swept at Arkansas, and they sit at just 2-7 overall in conference play. After dropping a midweek game to Southern on Monday night, LSU has now lost four in a row as it hopes to turn things around this weekend as a top-10 opponent comes to town in Vanderbilt.

In the meantime, however, coach Jay Johnson’s team continues to drop in On3’s national power rankings. After spending the whole year in the top 10, it fell 14 spots this week all the way to No. 20.

A series win over the Commodores, who rank eighth, would likely provide a nice boost for LSU in next week’s rankings. But with a loss, the Tigers will likely fall out of the top 25 entirely.
