College Baseball Rankings: Texas Baseball Tops Big 12 Top 25 Showing

The Oklahoma Sooners began the college baseball season ahead of the Big 12 curve in the Top 25, but it's Texas and Texas A&M who've shown staying power on the NCAA baseball rankings in April. Texas edged A&M by one point in the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper rankings to hit sixth, while USA Today/ESPN's college baseball rankings have Texas A&M fifth, with Texas and Oklahoma in a dogfight in the eighth and ninth spots.

Meanwhile, the Big 12 college baseball standings tell a similar story. Texas and Texas A&M are in an absolute tie atop the conference, with both teams 9-3 in-conference and 24-8 out. Oklahoma, meanwhile, has fallen behind Oklahoma State, with a conference record of just 6-5.

Getting local—well, things do not look good for the Missouri Tigers. They're just 1-7 in-conference, and going 12-12 out of it isn't quite enough to lead me to believe that that's a case of small-sample-size voodoo. After a slow start they picked things back up for a while before struggling again; swept by Oklahoma State over the weekend, they've now lost seven in a row.
