FIU has jumped nine spots in the latest Collegiate Baseball Poll to No. 21 from No. 30 last week. The Panthers took two of three from Dartmouth over the weekend to improve to 11-1.
FIU is No. 29 in the new Perfect Game USA Poll.
It's very early in the college baseball season with one-fifth of the schedule just completed and the more difficult opponents on deck, but the Panthers have done what they had to do -- win 11 of their first 12 games.
FIU starts its first road trip of the season Wednesday at Bethune-Cookman in Daytona Beach with a 4 p.m. single mid-week game at historic Jackie Robinson Ballpark. You can listen to the game on the FIU Sports Radio Network. I will be on the air beginning at 3:50 p.m. on Wednesday.
