College baseball rankings: Power Grid provides consensus Top 25 from 6 major polls (Week 5)

Tired of sifting through all of the college baseball rankings to figure out where your favorite team actually stands? We were, too.

So we introduce SEC Country’s college baseball power grid as a new source for “consensus” college baseball rankings through the 2018 season.

The format is pretty simple.

We used data from six of the prominent national college baseball polls: D1Baseball, Collegiate Baseball, Baseball America, Perfect Game, National Collegiate Baseball Writers of America and USA Today.

RELATED:  SEC Baseball Power Poll, Week 4

We awarded points based upon a team’s standing in each of those polls. A No. 1 ranking is worth 25 points, and a No. 25 ranking is worth one point. Teams that are not ranked in a poll are awarded no points for that poll.

Once we reach an aggregate number of points for each team, we then re-ranked each program according to the total amount of points.

Here’s a look at the results for Week 5, which use the polls released on Monday, March 12.
