Dallas Colleges: Mike Napoli
October, 25, 2011
There's been a Texas invasion of the latest Cross-Sport Power Rankings on ESPN.com.
Cardinals slugger Albert Pujols took the top spot after his 5-for-6, three-homer Game 3 performance. (The Rangers' Nelson Cruz was No. 1 last week, by the way.)
But after Pujols, Lone Star State athletes dominated the top 10.
Derek Holland was No. 2 after shutting down Pujols and the Cardinals in Game 4 of the World Series.
Cowboys rookie DeMarco Murray is No. 3 for setting a team record with 253 yards against the Rams.
Next is No. 4 Mike Napoli, whose bat and arm have the Rangers one win away from their first world championship.
Texas Tech quarterback Seth Doege, who led the Red Raiders' stunning upset of Oklahoma, is No. 5.
South Texas also provided top-10 pair, with University of Houston quarterback Case Keenum at No. 7 and Texans running back Arian Foster at No. 8.
