They start by discussing the continued intrigue within the ACC, where Georgia Tech won a wild home series against Louisville, Boston College pivoted from having a series against Wake Forest canceled to heading down to Auburn and winning a series against the Tigers, Miami bounced back from a Friday loss to win a series with North Carolina State and Virginia Tech continued its winning ways by winning two out of three against North Carolina and much more.
The hosts also talked about a good weekend for the Pac-12. Oregon State kept winning, pushing its record to 10-1 and forcing its way into the Top 25 for the first time this season, Oregon swept Big West favorite UC Santa Barbara in four games, Arizona's offense mashed, UCLA continued to round into form and Arizona State, which got bad injury news just before the weekend, pushed that aside to sweep conference foe Utah in a nonconference series. All of that has added intrigue to a Pac-12 regular-season race that, prior to the season, looked like it might be no more than a race of haves and have nots.
The Big Ten also got underway last weekend, and already, there is plenty to talk about, including Ohio State's high-end pitching talent, Michigan State's 3-1 start, Michigan looking like the ranked team that it is, Indiana's 3-1 start despite inconsistent production at the plate and both Maryland and Illinois having reasons for optimism despite 1-3 starts to the season.
They wrap up by discussing two items of note in the SEC, Mississippi State's combined no-hitter in its Sunday win over Kent State and Louisiana State suffering a surprising series loss at the hands of Oral Roberts.
