College Baseball Standings: Georgia Tech Has State's Best Conference Tourney Chances

Division I college baseball conference tournaments begin May 25, with some standings jostling left to do in the five southeastern conferences with Georgia schools. Clicking the name of any conference below will take you to a complete list of standings.

ACC: The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets enter the week two games behind the Virginia Cavaliers for the overall conference lead. Tech has only one remaining road series, against the Virginia Tech Hokies, while also welcoming the North Carolina Tar Heels to Russ Chandler Stadium. Those Heels will have an excellent chance to decide the final ACC Coastal standings, as they also get a home series against Virginia.

SEC: Having solidified at least a fourth-place finish in the SEC East, the Georgia Bulldogs hope to hold off the Arkansas Razorbacks for the conference tourney's No. 5 seed, but they aren't likely to overtake the Florida Gators to attain the No. 4 spot. Florida, along with the South Carolina Gamecocks, have some work to do to swipe the top position from the Vanderbilt Commodores, as both are a game back.

Atlantic Sun: The Stetson Hatters continue their A-Sun reign, having been ranked No. 24 last week before adding a road sweep of Florida Gulf Coast to their resume, but the Kennesaw St. Owls have a shot to take the conference's No. 3 standing away from the Belmont Bruins. KSU is a half-game back of Belmont, but has a tough five-game road stretch ahead, followed by a home series against the A-Sun No. 2 Jacksonville Dolphins.

SoCon: The Elon Phoenix have just about clinched the top conference position, but after that it's anybody's guess. The Georgia Southern Eagles are contending with the Charleston Cougars, Samford Bulldogs and UNC-Greensboro Spartans for the No. 2 seed. Southern's final games include a dangerous road series against the Appalachian St. Mountaineers and a home stand against the Davidson Wildcats.

CAA: If the Georgia St. Panthers can take their upcoming road series from William & Mary, they'll all but assure themselves of at least the Colonial's No. 6 seed. Three games back of the Old Dominion Monarchs, State could wind up anywhere from No. 1 to riding in with a losing record. The James Madison Dukes and UNC-Wilmington have the best opportunity to topple ODU, sitting a game behind each.
