Noting ACC Baseball  – March 14

• Nine ACC teams enter the week ranked in at least one major poll, with Louisville as high as No. 2 by Collegiate Baseball and as high as No. 3 by Baseball America. The Cardinals (14-1) have won nine straight games, matching their longest winning streak since early in the 2020 season.

• Boston College (12-2) also turned heads last week with a road win at then-No. 2 Tennessee, followed by a series win at Virginia Tech, ranked as high as No. 10 nationally. Unranked last week, the Eagles found their way into three major polls this week and ranked as high as No. 18 by both Baseball America and Perfect Game. The Eagles’ 12-2 start is the best in program history, eclipsing 11-3 through the first 14 games of 2016; the last season BC reached the NCAA Tournament.
