Seminoles Fall Eight Spots in Baseball America Poll

After being swept at home by Clemson, Florida State fell in each of the five major college baseball polls.

The Baseball America Poll is where the Seminoles took the biggest hit, falling eight spots from No. 9 all the way to 17th. The Collegiate Baseball Poll was where FSU took the smallest drop as the ‘Noles fell just two spots from eighth to 10th, where they rank highest this week.

The Seminoles took a 7-spot plunge in the NCBWA Poll. Last week, FSU sat at No. 9. This week, the Seminoles come in at No. 16.

Last week, Florida State was eighth in both the USA Today Coaches Poll and the D1Baseball.com Poll. The Seminoles fell five spots to 13th in the D1Baseball.com Poll on Monday and six spots to 14th in the coaches poll.

Florida State will play at least three games this week in the ACC Tournament in Durham including games against Clemson on Wednesday and Louisville on Saturday. Clemson is ranked 28th in this week’s Collegiate Baseball Poll while the Cardinals peak at No. 3 nationally.
