SEC Baseball Standings: New team on top in the East, LSU still trails Arkansas in West entering final week of the regular season

We’re coming down the home stretch in league play, and the race for the SEC regular-season title remains tight.

There are currently four frontrunners: Florida, Vanderbilt, Arkansas and LSU.

The former two faced last weekend with the Gators securing a sweep in Gainesville to reclaim the lead in the SEC East. Arkansas earned a series win over another top-10 team in South Carolina and maintains a half-game lead on UF.

For LSU, it was a weekend to forget. The team squandered leads in both Games 2 and 3 against Mississippi State to drop back-to-back SEC series. At 17-9, the Tigers remain in the race for both the division and league titles, but they need to close out strong against Georgia on the road next weekend and likely get some help.

Still, anything can happen as all four teams sit within two games of each other. Here’s how things stand in the league entering the final weekend of the regular season.
