Notre Dame baseball ranked No. 1 in the nation by Baseball America
Notre Dame moved up to No. 1 in the country in Baseball America’s latest poll.
The change comes after the Fighting Irish pulled off an impressive two-game sweep at NC State this past weekend. Notre Dame is now 11-1 on the season and have its highest ranking in over 20 years.

Notre Dame took the top spot from Texas, who went 2-3 this week — including a home loss to Texas State and a series defeat at South Carolina.
The Fighting Irish are looking to build off their impressive run a year ago that saw them win the ACC regular season title and host a Super Regional. They’re hoping to get back to Omaha for the College World Series for the first time since 2002.
Notre Dame is now 2-0 in conference play as it looks to defend its ACC regular season title. Up next is a mid-week game vs. Valparaiso and then a three-game road series at Louisville this weekend.
