LUBBOCK, Texas – Following a three-game series sweep over Oral Roberts, the Texas Tech baseball program moved up to No. 26 in the nation in two national polls as the National Collegiate Baseball Writers’ Association and Collegiate Baseball announced their weekly national top-30 polls today.
The Red Raiders (7-1) climbed four spots in the NCBWA poll while entering the poll last week at No. 30. Tech, who moved its winning streak to seven games on Monday with a win over BYU, jumped two spots in the Collegiate Baseball poll after entering at 30th last week.
Texas Tech has allowed two or fewer runs in seven of eight games played this season and has given up a total of 15 runs in the opening eight games this campaign.
The Red Raiders season includes taking three of four games from third-ranked Indiana, sweeping a three-game series over Oral Roberts and knocking off BYU on Monday to complete their eight-game homestand to start the 2014 season.
Texas Tech will hit the road this week at Stephen F. Austin on Thursday, Feb. 27, before playing three games against Houston (Feb. 28), Sam Houston State (Mar. 1) and No. 10 Rice (Mar. 2) at the Houston College Classic at Minute Maid Park.
