For the second straight week, there’s a new No. 1 in the D1Baseball Top 25 rankings. LSU became the third Southeastern Conference team to assume the top spot after winning a road series at Arkansas to improve to 21-3 on the season. Florida fell from No. 1 to No. 4 after losing a road series to Ole Miss.

EastonThe top four teams in the rankings are all SEC teams, as Vanderbilt and Texas A&M moved up two spots apiece to No. 2 and No. 3, respectively, after winning road series. The fifth and final SEC team in the rankings, South Carolina, fell six spots to No. 12 after a 1-3 week that included a series loss to upstart Missouri.

The biggest mover in this week’s rankings was Florida State, which vaulted from No. 20 to No. 13 after winning a road series at Virginia. The Cavaliers fell five more spots to No. 18 after losing their second straight series, dropping them to 1-5 in the ACC. Oregon fell even more after its second straight weekend series, falling 10 spots to No. 25.

Two Pac-12 teams joined the rankings, giving the conference six teams in the Top 25 — more than any other league. California entered the rankings at No. 23 after sweeping a road series at Washington, a week after winning a series against Oregon. And Oregon State joined the rankings at No. 24 following a sweep of Washington State, which included a perfect game from freshman Drew Rasmussen on Saturday.

D1Baseball editors Aaron Fitt and Kendall Rogers determine the Top 25 rankings. Records are through games of March 22.
