College: Baseball America Top 25 for March 9

Baseball America released its College Top 25 poll for March 9 with LSU taking over the top spot after a rough week for former No. 1 Vanderbilt.

LSU improved to 15-1 after running through the competition at the Houston College Classic to take over the No. 1 spot in the poll. They are joined by fellow SEC team Florida who now sits at No. 2 in the poll after jumping over Virginia.

Several teams made huge jumps in the poll including Southern California (No. 25 to No. 9) and Texas A&M (No. 22 to No. 10.) Houston had the biggest fall. The preseason top 5 team fell from No. 8 to No. 24 after a 1-3 weekend ran their record to a disappointing 9-7.
