How the series loss at Texas A&M affected Arkansas Baseball in the weekly polls

·2 min read

Arkansas Baseball suffered just its’ second SEC-series loss of the season last weekend when the Razorbacks fell in two games on the road to a hot Texas A&M squad.

Just how crucial was the series loss? The pollsters have many differing opinions on that.

Out of the five major polls, Arkansas is placed in five different positions. Some polls had in mind that Texas A&M has played very well recently, while others punished Arkansas by losing a series on the road to an unranked program.

Here’s a look at the whirlwind that is the national polls for the week of April 25:
