Stanford, Cal NCAA Baseball Rankings Update: Cardinal Remains 15th, Cal Moves to 36th

The Stanford Cardinal and California Golden Bears continue to rack up wins in their respective schedules, staying towards the top of NCAA baseball rankings for yet another week. Let's take a look at how each team has fared compared to the rest of the NCAA Division I baseball schools. 
The Cardinal remained in the 15th spot in the rankings this week after splitting their last 6 games with 3 wins and 3 losses, two of which came against the numer 4 ranked school and Pac-10 rival Arizona State. Stanford currently owns a 22-16 record this season, with a dismal 6-9 record in Pac-10 play. The Pac-10 currently has 5 teams ranked in the top 40 in the nation, but Stanford will need to pick it up within their conference if they really want to make a move in the rankings.

As for the Golden Bears, they moved up one spot from 37th to 36th this week. They also finished their last 6 games at a 3-3 clip, also with losses to Pac-10 rival Arizona State as well as Oregon. Cal is 27-14 on the season so far with a 11-7 record in Pac-10 play. Cal is ranked 25th in the USA Today/ESPN rankings with Stanford just on the outside looking in to the top 25. Don't know why there is such a disparity between the two rankings, but Cal should probably be ranked a few spots higher in the NCAA ranks in my opinion.
