The Gamecocks are No. 3 for the second-straight week in two national college baseball polls.

South Carolina was 4-0 last week, beating The Citadel in a midweek contest and then sweeping Kentucky over the weekend.

The top 17 spots remained unchanged in the Baseball America Top 25 rankings. The top four spots are the same in the Collegiate Baseball poll.

Vanderbilt swept Auburn on the road and remained atop the Baseball America Top 25 for the second week in a row. Virginia was 4-0 last week and is still No. 1 in the Collegiate Baseball rankings.

The Gamecocks host USC Upstate on Tuesday before traveling to Tennessee for a three-game series that begins Thursday night.
