PITTSBURGH – Coming off of a weekend sweep of Towson, the University of Pittsburgh baseball team has moved up to the No. 26 ranking in the latest Collegiate Baseball Newspaper poll.
The Panthers, who cracked the rankings at No. 30 last week, are ranked for the first time since the 2010 season when they climbed to as high as 20th in the polls.
Counting the Panthers, three Big East teams are ranked in the latest poll including No. 12 Louisville and No. 23 Notre Dame.
The Collegiate Baseball Newspaper pool is the oldest college baseball poll as it dates back to the 1957 college baseball season.
Pitt returns to action on Tuesday, April 2, when it travels to Akron for a midweek showdown with the Zips.
