Top-ranked TCU headlines the D1Baseball Preseason Top 25, released Tuesday. The Horned Frogs are coming off three consecutive College World Series appearances, and they bring back eight everyday regulars, two weekend starters and the closer from a club that reached the national semifinals in 2016.

No. 2 Florida enters the season ranked in the top two for the third consecutive year. The Gators backed up last year’s preseason No. 1 ranking by earning the No. 1 national seed for the NCAA tournament and reaching Omaha.

Including the Frogs and Gators, seven of the eight participants in the 2016 CWS are ranked in the preseason Top 25. Coastal Carolina opens its national title defense ranked 11th, and national runner-up Arizona begins at No. 19. Texas Tech (No. 14), Miami (No. 21) and UC Santa Barbara (No. 25) also begin the season in the rankings.

The SEC leads all conferences with four teams in the top 10: No. 2 Florida, No. 4 South Carolina, No. 5 LSU and No. 7 Vanderbilt.

The ACC leads all leagues with seven teams in the Top 25: No. 3 Florida State, No. 6 NC State, No. 9 North Carolina, No. 12 Louisville, No. 15 Clemson, No. 17 Virginia and No. 21 Miami. The SEC is next with five, followed by the Pac-12 with three. The Big 12, Big West and Sun Belt placed two teams apiece in the rankings, while the American Athletic Conference, Big Ten, Colonial Athletic Association and Conference USA each landed one team in the Top 25.
