The Terps (18-8, 5-1 Big Ten) had themselves another successful week, taking care of business in Piscataway, Nj., sweeping Rutgers (10-17, 0-3 Big Ten) in the three-game series. Maryland has won 17 of its last 20 since their 1-5 start, including six of their last seven. The Terps currently sit tied for second place in the Big Ten behind Minnesota (18-8, 6-0 Big Ten).
Maryland is tied in the Big Ten Standings with the Nebraska Cornhuskers (15-10-1, 2-0-1), the Terps’ opponent this coming weekend out in Lincoln, Neb.
The 3-0 week was enough to put the Terps back into the rankings for the first time since the first week. They currently rank No. 25 in Baseball America’s Top 25 and No. 24 in D1 Baseball’s Top 25. However they remain unranked on Perfect Game.
Of Maryland’s previous opponents, two find themselves in the top five (Louisville, UNC), and LSU checks in at No. 13. Michigan (No. 18) is the only other Big Ten team to be ranked. N.C. State, which was No. 6 in the nation when the Terps beat the Wolfpack in Cary, Nc., is still unranked.
This week, The Terps will play a game against Richmond (11-15) at home on Tuesday and then head to Lincoln Nebraska to take on the Cornhuskers (15-10-1, 2-0-1 Big Ten).
