Three! 3! III!  No matter how you say it, it looks great! 

Illinois baseball has been ranked #3 by Collegiate Baseball.  That’s a jump from a #8 ranking from CB from last week.  It goes without saying it’s the highest ranking Illinois baseball has received in school history (though that’s been true for a few weeks now). 

Collegiate Baseball isn’t the only one recognizing the Illini after their 4-0 week and their sweep of #23 Ohio State.  All major polls moved Illinois up in the ranking including Perfect Game who ranked them #4. 

Take a look at where Illinois is ranked this week:
