Following a four-win week, No. 23 Texas holds steady in national baseball poll

Posted March 5th, 2018


Listed 23rd in last week’s D1Baseball poll, Texas held onto that ranking on Monday.

Texas went 4-1 during a busy week at UFCU Disch-Falk Field. On Tuesday, the Longhorns tossed a one-hitter in a 2-0 win over UT-San Antonio. After losing 6-2 to Northwestern on Friday, Texas scored 38 runs in three routs of the Wildcats.

The Longhorns (8-4) will soon have a chance to impress those who compile D1Baseball’s poll. On Thursday, Texas are set to open a four-game homestand against Stanford. The nation’s seventh-ranked team is 11-1, but Stanford has only played one game away from home.


Last year, Stanford took three of the four games it played in California against Texas.
