Where LSU stands in SEC baseball power rankings after shakeup following opening weekend of conference play

One weekend of SEC baseball play is in the books, and it resulted in quite a bit of shakeup in On3’s SEC power rankings.

LSU opened the week with a pair of midweek wins over North Dakota State, but it suffered a frustrating series loss over the weekend on the road against Mississippi State.

It ranked No. 2 in On3’s SEC power rankings from Jonathan Wagner entering the weekend, but it fell one spot to No. 3 and was leapfrogged by Vanderbilt, which earned a weekend sweep over a ranked Auburn team.

The Tigers remain ahead of Florida, who they face this weekend in Baton Rouge.

LSU began last week with a pair of midweek wins over North Dakota State, winning 6-1 on Tuesday and 7-0 on Wednesday. They then hit the road for a trip to Starkville, kicking off SEC play at Mississippi State. It was the Bulldogs that took Friday’s opener 10-4, though LSU evened the series on Saturday with a 9-8 victory. In Sunday’s rubber match, LSU was run-ruled in a 15-5 loss, a surprising result to end a difficult weekend. This week won’t be any easier with Florida coming to town.

The Gators moved up two spots this week after taking two of three against previously unbeaten Texas A&M, and LSU will look to halt that success at Alex Box Stadium.
