Two Texas-based schools posted noteworthy wins on Friday in distinctly different ways, as #13 TCU rallied in the 8th for a 3-2 win at #20 Cal State Fullerton while #26 Baylor was gushing with production all over its lineup (including several reserves) in a 15-3 sereies-opener at #25 UCLA. Meanwhile, on the northern end of the state, #3 Stanford continued its strong start with a 7-2 win over #8 Texas. front-page photo courtesy of FIU

In our little mini-competition between the three Texas schools playing in California, the Lone Star squads went 2-1 on Friday with a 20-12 scoring edge. Those games were part of 43 that were slated for top-50 teams in the CB360 Composite National Rankings (CNR), with 13 upsets resulting from the 41 games that were played (favorites were only 28-13, or 68%, with a pair of rainouts).

Three CB360 top-20 teams were victims of those upsets, as #11 Florida State dropped an 8-5 battle with #47 Florida International … #18 Vanderbilt was edged by visiting #36 Oregon … and Maine won 6-5 at #16 Clemson. Friday’s nine other CB360 top-50 upsets broke down as follows:
• at San Diego State 18, #21 Oregon State 2
• at Long Beach State 7, #22 California
• Washington 3, at #24 UC Irvine
• at Texas Tech 4, #28 St. Jogn’s 1
• Rhode Island 9, at #32 College of Charleston 5
• Troy 3, at #35 Southern Mississippi 0
• at Pepperdine 3, #43 Fresno State 2
• at Lipscomb 2, #46 Kent State 1
• at Portland 3, #50 Creighton 2

It was a rough night out west for several CB360 top-50, as Fullerton, Oregon State, Cal, Irvine, UCLA and Fresno all lost (by a combined score of 49-14), with five of those six games being upsets based on the CNR.

In addition to those referenced above, there were two games on the docket Friday involving head-to-head battles between CB360 top-50 teams – as #5 Rice beat #38 Dallas baptist (8-5) while #40 Purdue was rained out at #33 East Carolina (makeup game set for Sat., Feb. 25).
