Oregon State climbed to No. 3 in the USA Today baseball poll released on Monday, and up to No. 4 in the Baseball America poll.
OSU had previously been ranked No. 4 and No. 6 in the two polls, respectively.
The Beavers remained at No. 4 in the Collegiate Baseball poll.
Oregon State also climbed to No. 4 in the RPI numbers released on Tuesday. They entered the weekend at No. 6 in the NCAA's metric.
The Beavs look to be all but certain to earn one of eight national seeds and host a regional when the pairings are announced on Monday, May 27.
The selection show is slated for 9 a.m. and will be broadcast on ESPNU.
The Oregon State-Oregon rivalry looks to be growing in popularity on the national scene. "The Clemson-South Carolina rivalry is the most intense in college baseball, for our money, but the Civil War is gaining ground," says Baseball America.
