Two sets of bulldogs have dropped out of this week’s Perfect Game collegiate rankings. Mississippi State, who was previously #17, and Georgia, who came in last week at #24. Mississippi State now sits at 6-6 after going 2-3 last week and Georgia falls to 9-2 after an even 2-2 week, including a series loss to Georgia Tech where nothing seemed to go right in the first two games.

To add to the rough week for Mississippi State, top pitcher Landon Sims suffered an injury and had to leave his start early on Friday night after 3 & 2/3 innings where he struck out 10 of the 11 batters he faced and didn’t allow a baserunner.

The rest of the rankings shake out this way:

  1. Texas (11-1)
  2. Vanderbilt (10-2)
  3. Notre Dame (8-1)
  4. Stanford (8-3)
  5. Ole Miss (10-1)
  6. Tennessee (10-1)
  7. Georgia Tech (10-2)
  8. Oklahoma State (6-4)
  9. Oregon State (9-1)
  10. LSU (9-3)
  11. Arkansas (7-3)
  12. Liberty (10-1)
  13. UCLA (8-4)
  14. Florida State (7-4)
  15. TCU (8-3)
  16. Texas Tech (10-2)
  17. NC State (8-4)
  18. Clemson (11-0)
  19. Florida (10-3)
  20. North Carolina (11-1)
  21. Arizona (9-3)
  22. Tulane (10-2)
  23. Virginia (11-0)
  24. Miami (8-3)
  25. Maryland (9-2)

Notable Risers and Fallers:

-NC State dropped ten spots from #7 to #17 after going winless and being swept by Northeastern.

-North Carolina improved to 11-1 on the season after a 5-0 week and jumped from being unranked to the #20 spot.

-Tennessee jumped up 8 spots to #6 due to their strong Shriners College Classic performance. The Volunteers dropped their first game to #1 Texas but showed up to beat Baylor and Oklahoma.
