It was another successful week on the diamond for Conference USA. League members posted wins over five different teams from the SEC, including Alabama, Auburn, Arkansas, Mississippi State and Tennessee. Houston (Arkansas, Tennessee) and Southern Miss (Alabama, Auburn) each defeated two of those teams. C-USA teams also defeated schools from the Big 12 and Pac-12. The top six teams in Conference USA have a combined record of 55-14, with Rice, Tulane and UCF already reaching the 10-win mark in the very young season.
