Texas A&M baseball clinched the #1 spot in the USA Today Coaches poll after coming out of their weekend series with Missouri holding a 27-2 record (7-2 SEC). Last week the LSU Tigers held the number 1 spot, but slid down to number 4 this week after dropping two games to Kentucky during their series over the weekend.

With over half of the season in the books, Texas A&M will continue to rely on their clutch hitting as they get ready to face the 14-16 Sam Houston State Bearkats on Tuesday before hitting the road for a weekend series with the 18-10 Kentucky Wildcats. While Kentucky currently sits unranked in this weeks poll, they own the 16 spot in current RPI rankings.

Both D1 Baseball and Baseball American polls have the Aggies sitting at #2 behind the 22-6 Vanderbilt Commodores.
