The college baseball season is around the corner, with three Fridays left without college baseball. News over the last few weeks has trended in the positive direction, as the SEC and Big 12 officially announced normal conference schedules. Rumors suggest that the Pac-12 may follow suit soon. Most teams are on track for 40-56 games including a mix of non-conference and conference games.
So far, four major college baseball publications have released their preseason rankings. We have compiled those rankings and listed teams in order of average rank (teams were first sorted by number of polls they were ranked in).
Florida is the unanimous number one team in the country, and the composition of the top five is nearly unanimous. Sixteen teams were ranked in all four polls, with an additional five teams ranked in three out of four polls.
Arkansas, Miami (FL), TCU, and Texas were the most controversial teams in the rankings. UCSB (nine) is the highest-ranked mid-major team.
The college baseball season is scheduled to begin on February 19. See the Opening Day schedule here.
