BATON ROUGE -- When you take two of three from the nation's No. 1 team, it's bound to catch some attention.

That's exactly what happened in this week's ESPN baseball power rankings, which you can see here.

LSU was bound to raise some eyebrows after the Tigers (25-7, 8-4) finished off a weeklong stretch that saw them take two of three games from the highly touted Gators. Prior to that, LSU swept Arkansas -- currently No. 16 in the power rankings.

Everything seems to be clicking for the Tigers as they gear up for the back half of the season. With all the attention the team is catching, it will be interesting to see how LSU handles a busy week, which starts Tuesday night. If the Tigers are going to make a push for the SEC crown, they have to handle business against the likes of last-place Alabama, which comes to Alex Box Stadium this weekend.
