TUCSON, Ariz. (KFSM)- It’s time for preseason baseball rankings to start rolling in and Arkansas’ first one is hard to complain about. The Razorbacks sit at #3 in Collegiate Baseball’s preseason poll.

The rest of the top five goes to the defending national champion Florida Gators at #1, Oklahoma State at #2,  Arkansas at #3, Florida State at #4, and Texas Tech at #5.

The Razorbacks completed a successful 2017 campaign with  45-wins and their 28th NCAA Regional appearance in program history. The Razorbacks enter their 16th season under the leadership of head coach Dave Van Horn as one of the most highly touted teams in the nation. It’s the highest preseason ranking for Arkansas since being ranked No. 1 by Collegiate Baseball in 2013.

Arkansas is scheduled to open the 2018 season against Bucknell on Friday, Feb. 16 with first pitch at 3 p.m. at Baum Stadium.
