Fullerton Toughs Out Another WinAt The Ballpark
IRVINE, Calif. — One of the best rivalries in all of college baseball had a bit of a falling off this year. No not in the intensity that the two teams feel toward wanting to beat the other, but in the perception of the rivalry from those around the college baseball community.
Give or take a season or two, Cal State Fullerton and UC Irvine have probably been THE best rivalry in the Southland over the last 10 or so years. But this year, neither of these two find themselves in the hunt for a home Regional or as mentioned as possible teams for Omaha. (Then again, when DO Big West teams get mid-season mention as Omaha teams, they just do all their damage in the post-season and take down No. 1 seeds left and right and make it to Omaha. But I digress). In fact, coming into this weekend the Titans and Anteaters found themselves at No. 62 and No. 70, respectively, in the RPI rankings.
