CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- The Miami Hurricanes continued their ascent in the national polls this week, rising to No. 8 in the newest Baseball America rankings released Monday.

After taking two of three games from SWAC leaders Alabama State this weekend, Miami stayed put at No. 12 in the newest Perfect Game top 25.
The Hurricanes also remained in the top five of Collegiate Baseball Newspaper’s rankings, falling one spot from No. 4 to No. 5. Miami dropped a spot in the USA Today coaches’ poll, moving down from No. 14 to No. 15.
