|Cougars fall in
polls after rough weekend
By Josh Gajewski
The UH baseball team continued its see-saw positioning in the national polls Monday after dropping two of three to Tulane over the weekend.
The Cougars dropped three spots in Collegiate Baseball's poll to the No. 9 spot, while tonight's opponent, Baylor, moved up one spot to No. 20.
UH fell from No. 5 to No. 12 in Baseball America's ranking while Baylor moved up to No. 15.
Texas is the only other school from the Lone Star State to make it into the Top 25. The Longhorns are No. 3 in both polls, behind only Florida State, Clemson and Stanford. UT swept a three-game set from Oklahoma over the weekend to up their winning streak to nine games.
FSU moved back into the top spot in both polls after an impressive sweep of Maryland in which the Terrapins were unable to score a single run in the series.
UH will try and make a return into the top five after this week, when they will be on the road at Baylor tonight and at Birmingham to face Alabama-Birmingham over the weekend.
The road has been kind to the Cougars this season. UH has posted a 12-2
away from home thus far but have gone only 8-7 at Cougar Field.
