For the second week in a row, there’s a new No. 1 in the D1Baseball Top 25. LSU returned to the top spot for the first time since Week Six (March 22), replacing Texas A&M, which lost a home series against Arkansas. The Aggies slipped just one spot after their first losing weekend of the season, setting up a showdown between No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Texas A&M next weekend in Baton Rouge.
Vanderbilt, which had been No. 1 two weeks ago, continued to slide down the rankings after losing its second straight series, falling six spots to No. 13. Miami also fell out of the top 10 after dropping a set at Virginia. Illinois and Southern California moved into the top 10 at No. 9 and No. 10, respectively.
There wasn’t a lot of additional movement in the rankings until the back, where Nebraska and UCF dropped out of the Top 25 after losing series. They were replaced by College of Charleston (No. 23) and Arkansas (No. 25). The Cougars have won five straight series, while the Hogs have won four series in a row to overcome their rough start to the season.
