D1Baseball Top 25 Rankings: May 26

LSU finished the regular season atop the D1Baseball Top 25 rankings after a 2-1 showing in the SEC tournament. The Tigers (49-8), who have spent the last six weeks atop the rankings, earned the No. 2 national seed in the NCAA tournament.

UCLA, the top national seed, remains at No. 2 in the D1Baseball rankings despite losing its final series at Oregon. The other six national seeds are ranked No. 3 (Florida), No. 4 (Louisville), No. 5 (Illinois), No. 7 (Miami), No. 9 (Missouri State) and No. 10 (TCU). The Frogs dropped six spots from No. 4 to No. 10 after going 0-2 in the Big 12 tournament.

The biggest climbers in the Top 25 were Houston (up five spots to No. 14 after reaching the AAC tournament final) and Radford (up five spots to No. 18 after winning the Big South tournament title). UC Santa Barbara was the biggest faller, down seven spots to No. 21 after losing a series to last-place UC Riverside.

Big West champion Cal State Fullerton returned to the rankings at No. 19 after sweeping Long Beach State. And two teams entered the rankings this week for the first time all season. AAC tournament champion East Carolina debuted at No. 23, while ACC tournament runner-up NC State entered the rankings at No. 24. Iowa, Florida Atlantic and California dropped out of the Top 25.

D1Baseball editors Aaron Fitt and Kendall Rogers determine the Top 25 rankings. Records are through games of May 24.
