Take a look at the , and a couple things stand out.One, some of the sports powers are right where youd expect them (Vanderbilt, LSU, Florida, UCLA, Louisville and Miami to name a few). And <a href="https://www.rangersfanspride.com/texas-rangers-jersey/jurickson-profar-jersey">Jurickson Profar Jersey</a> two, there is new breed of teams that have replaced other traditional powers (UC Santa Barbara, Illinois, UCF, Florida Atlantic, Dallas Baptist and Iowa to name a few).MORE: | This weeks look around the nation is a snapshot of five teams that have some work to do to a sure themselves of going on the road to Omaha.Virginia (7-11 ACC, 22-14, RPI 47)The Cavaliers have been one of college baseballs best programs over the past decade. And after appearing in last years College World Series championship series, they were an obvious pick to return to Omaha. But injuries throughout the lineup have contributed to some inconsistency in the offensive attack, although at just more than five runs a game, Virginia is scoring like it did last year. Getting Joe McCarthy (.301/6/49 last year) back this week from back surgery will <a href="https://www.rangersfanspride.com/texas-rangers-jersey/jason-grilli-jersey">Jason Grilli Jersey</a> help, but the key may be the mound, where the Cavaliers ERA (3.45) is more than a run higher than last year. They have a golden opportunity this week to make amends with No. 9 Miami coming to Charlottesville, where they are just 4-8 at home.Rice (12-6 CUSA, 24-15, RPI 45)The Owls played a terrific early-season schedule as they always do (Texas, Arizona, Stanford) and got off to a 6-0 start in conference play. Since, however, theyve gone 6-6 in league play, dropping road series to Old Dominion and UAB. Like <a href="https://www.rangersfanspride.com/texas-rangers-jersey/brett-martin-jersey">Brett Martin Jersey</a> Virginia, Rices team ERA is up by a run from last year. But the Owls should be able to rely on a balanced lineup that has six starters hitting better than .300, led by Kirby Taylors .378 and the reliable John Clay Reeves (.359/6/41), who has about half of the teams 13 homers. Rice entertains UTSA this weekend.South Carolina (6-10 SEC, 23-16, RPI 68)The Gamecocks appear in this piece for the second week in a row after getting battered by Florida in Gainesville and opening this weekends home series with Vanderbilt with a 12-0 lo s Thursday night. Including the Vandy lo s, South Carolina has allowed 10 or more runs in five of its past seven SEC games. <a href="https://www.rangersfanspride.com/texas-rangers-jersey/jonathan-hernandez-jersey">Jonathan Hernandez Jersey</a> As the pitching has faltered (3.88 ERA is up from 2.43 last year), the Gamecocks are hitting only .259 despite the big bat of Kyle Martin (.373/8/39). Losing Friday-night arm Wil Crowe doesnt help, but South Carolina should put up a fight.Oregon State (6-6 Pac-12, 23-11, RPI 51)The Pac-12 is loaded, and the Beavers <a href="https://www.rangersfanspride.com/texas-rangers-jersey/cole-hamels-jersey">Cole Hamels Jersey</a> easily could be faring better than sixth place with three of their league lo ses coming by a run, including a gut-wrenching 3-2 lo s last Friday to rival Oregon in which they gave up two runs to the Ducks without allowing a hit in the bottom of the ninth. Andrew Moore (3-1, 1.46) and Drew Rasmu sen (4-2, 2.44) will need to continue to shine on the mound as the Beavers host Arizona and upstart USC the next two weekends.Clemson (9-9 ACC, 20-18, RPI 81)Its go-time for the Tigers, who <a href="https://www.rangersfanspride.com/texas-rangers-jersey/bartolo-colon-jersey">Bartolo Colon Jersey</a> have been to Regionals in 20 of Jack Leggetts 21 years. Since dropping three of its first four conference series, Clemson has series wins over North Carolina and Boston College heading into this weekends get together with Duke. Theres time to improve the RPI with the likes of Georgia Tech (RPI 12), Louisville (10) and Florida State (7) still to play, but playing high-RPI teams will only do so much Clemson will need to win a chunk of those games to put itself into postseason position.
