Despite losses at Stanford, Texas holds onto No. 12 ranking in the D1Baseball poll

Posted March 11th, 2019


Three losses on the road this weekend did not cost Texas its No. 12 spot in the D1Baseball poll on Monday.

Fueled by a sweep of LSU, Texas climbed 10 spots last week to D1Baseball’s No. 12 ranking. The Longhorns then dropped three of its four games at Stanford and was outscored 21-3 in its losses. Texas also needed to rally past UT-Rio Grande Valley in order to record last week’s 4-3 win in Austin.

Texas was joined by No. 11 Texas Tech and No. 21 TCU in the most-recent poll. Ranked sixth last week, Stanford is now listed fourth.


Texas (12-6) and Texas Tech (11-3) will engage in a three-game battle this weekend at UFCU Disch-Falk Field. Texas Southern (2-10) is UT’s scheduled guest on Tuesday evening.
