If you think the regular season of ACC baseball has been amazing with all it’s ups and downs, hold our beer. The ACC Baseball Championship is just a hair shy of a week away. The race for regular season conference supremacy will finally be put to the test over a five day period. That taste of what’s to come teases each player as they cross home plate.
Let’s take a look at the college baseball rankings from D1Baseball and the USA Today/Coaches’ Poll plus the NCAA RPI. Has any dust settled in the rankings? Not this week and that’s keeping the churn going in the Top 25.
The top dog may still be UCLA in two of the three rankings but there’s plenty of friction among the rest of the teams. Each want to take a bite out of the Bruins.
Among ACC teams a new front-runner has emerged. It’s been a slow, methodical approach for Georgia Tech as they continue pushing for a spot among the top 5.
It’s best to keep an eye over your shoulder though when you take the lead. The Wolfpack who were once among the top 5 are beginning to rise again and at a critical point in the season. Pack9 are looking for their second wind. The ACC Tournament may be where they find it.

Field Of 64
How does it look for the ACC in the NCAA Field of 64? Baseball America has a projection that will make some teams feel warm and fuzzy. Unfortunately, a few will just feel jilted and left out in the cold.
The last regular season games are scheduled for Saturday, May 18. Teams will get a short rest and head to Durham for the ACC Baseball Championship beginning on Tuesday, May 21. Who moves forward and who stays home?
