Nice Rebound: No. 12 Virginia evened out their ACC record at 6-6 following a road sweep at Notre Dame. LHP Nathan Kirby struck out 8 over 6 IP on Friday.
NC State has won six in a row following a sweep of Pittsburgh over the weekend.
Stock Down: Both Duke and their talented ace Michael Matuella have disappointed lately. The Blue Devils fell to 4-8 in ACC play following a sweep at the hands of Boston College. Matuella struggled with his control on Friday (4.2 IP, 5 H, 6 R, 2 ER, 5 BB, 6 K) and hasn't been pitching deep into his starts.
Stock Down: No. 11 Texas got dropped on the road by an upstart Nebraska squad.
Prospect Note: Longhorns shortstop C.J. Hinojosa gets a shoutout in this BA article as a college SS with top 2 rounds potential this year. If he continues to bat around .200 though, I doubt that happens even if he does bring a plus glove.
Your National ERA Leader: Corey Taylor - RHP - Texas Tech - Not to be confused with this Corey Taylor, lead singer of Slipknot. Taylor, the pitcher, carries a 0.29 ERA in 32 IP of relief work for the the Red Raiders.
Nice Rebound: No. 4 TCU fell from top ranked status last week, but could return soon if they keep picking up sweeps like the they did over Wichita State this weekend.
