What you may have missed in college baseball during March Madness

College baseball season breakdown, so far, with D1Baseball's Kendall Rogers

While basketball’s March Madness took the sports world by storm over the last few weeks, college baseball rolled on, delivering fantastic showdowns and performances. Here’s what you may have missed

SEC conference play started and it’s unpredictable

SEC conference play started right around the same time as the DI men’s and women’s basketball tournaments, and even if you’ve been paying attention, the conference where “it just means more” may have been hard to follow thanks to its unpredictable nature.

We’ve seen results like Missouri sweeping a three-game series over Tennessee, only to get swept in back-to-back series by South Carolina and Kentucky. We’ve also seen a 10-inning thriller between LSU and Arkansas that ended with the Razorbacks scoring 8 runs, including a grand slam, in the top of the 10th to win 9-3.

Then there was a fantastic series between LSU and Tennessee.

LSU vs. Tennessee lives up to the hype

LSU and Tennessee was a top-10 SEC battle between two teams with MCWS aspirations. The series didn’t disappoint.

LSU won the first two games of the series, with game one coming down to a base-clearing double in the bottom of the eighth to break open a tie game.

Tennessee turned the tide in game three, blasting the Tigers 14-7 after scoring 10 runs in the first two innings. It was a back-and-forth series that could be a postseason preview.
