Florida baseball stays put in Week 7 D1Baseball rankings update

Florida baseball stays put in Week 7 D1Baseball rankings update

Some may be upset that Florida didn’t drop from the No. 6 spot in the Week 7 update to the D1Baseball Top 25 rankings, especially after going home early on Tuesday in a run-rule loss to Florida State, but the Gators’ ability to come out on top each weekend has kept them afloat in the top-5 conversation all season long.

“Florida holds steady at No. 6 after continuing its season-long pattern: losing midweek but rebounding to win two of three against a ranked opponent on the weekend,” the intro to the top-25 rankings read this week.

“The Gators have done that three weeks in a row, posting three straight 2-2 weeks, but those weeks included series wins vs. No. 3 Texas A&M, at No. 18 LSU and vs. No. 23 Mississippi State. As a result, Florida has moved neither up nor down in the rankings, instead simply holding its position.”

The SEC continues to dominate the ratings, with 10 teams inside the top 25 and five inside the top 10. There’s a reason conference play gets likened to Single-A competition.

Nebraska and UCF broke into the top 25 this week, making Florida’s midweek loss to the Knight a bit more palatable. Florida State is ranked No. 14 and has already taken the season series against UF
