KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - This remarkable Tennessee baseball team had maintained a unanimous number one ranking for several weeks, but after dropping two of three at Kentucky this past weekend, Tony Vitello’s Vols now share the top billing in a couple of the polls with Oregon State. The Beavers climbed to No. 1 in the Baseball America Top 25 after sweeping in-state rival Oregon and extending its lead in the Pac-12 standings. The Volunteers are 42-6 overall, 20-4 in SEC play, Oregon State now has a 38-9 overall record.
