KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – For the first time this season, the University of Tennessee baseball team finds themselves ranked No. 25 in the nation by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper as announced Monday.

After a three-game sweep of Norfolk State for the team’s home opener, the Vols find themselves ranked for the first time since February 2015.

The Vols overall record is 9-1 with their only loss coming in a series against Memphis. Tennessee won the series 2-1, but dropped one game to the Tigers.

The team is currently on an eight-game win streak and looks to extend it in its next game on Tuesday at East Tennessee State University. However, Eastern Tennessee State University said there is a high probability that the game will be postponed due to inclement weather.
