Florida and Texas A&M remained in the top two spots in the D1Baseball Top 25 rankings after winning marquee weekend series against highly ranked opponents. The Gators took two out of three from Vanderbilt, which fell just one spot from No. 11 to No. 12. The Aggies went on the road and won two of three against South Carolina, which dropped two spots to No. 11.
Miami, Mississippi State and Louisville each posted undefeated weeks to round out the top five. Defending national champion Virginia climbed into the top 10 for the first time this year, jumping four spots to No. 8 after taking a series from Georgia Tech. The Jackets fell from No. 19 to No. 22. Elsewhere in the ACC, Florida State dropped four spots to No. 9 after losing a road series at Duke.
LSU rounds out the top 10 after a 5-0 week that included two road wins against Notre Dame and three against Tennessee. The Tigers jumped six spots to No. 10.
There was significant upheaval in the back half of the Top 25, as nine teams ranked in the back half last week lost weekend series. Three of them — East Carolina, Arizona and Oregon State — dropped out of the rankings and were replaced by Southern Miss (which took advantage of the vacuum to jump in at No. 17), Cal State Fullerton (No. 18) and Clemson (No. 19).
D1Baseball editors Aaron Fitt and Kendall Rogers determine the Top 25 rankings. Records are through May 15 and do not include ties.
