LSU entered the season as a consensus top-five team in all five major college baseball preseason rankings, ranked as high as No. 2 and as low as No. 5. 

The Tigers enjoyed a banner opening weekend that included the first individual no-hitter by an LSU pitcher since 1979 when Jared Poché held Army hitless in a seven-inning game Saturday. 

LSU finished its opening weekend undefeated for the ninth consecutive season, and 10th time in coach Paul Mainieiri's 11 seasons.
