D1Baseball Top 25: April 3Rankings
Oregon State remained No. 1 in the D1Baseball Top 25 rankings for the third straight week after sweeping a road series at then-No. 11 Stanford. The Beavers have won 19 games in a row and own a 24-1 overall record to go along with a perfect 9-0 mark in Pac-12 play.
Louisville stayed No. 2 after winning a road series at Virginia, and TCU moved up a spot to No. 3 after sweeping its second straight conference series. Clemson also climbed one spot to No. 4 after winning a road series at Georgia Tech, and fellow ACC power North Carolina moved into the top five for the first time this season after sweeping a road series at Florida State for the first time ever.
Other big climbers this week include Kentucky and Arizona. UK vaulted eight spots to No. 8 after taking two of three from Vanderbilt, giving the Wildcats three straight quality series wins (they also took two of three at Texas A&M and swept Ole Miss). Arizona bounced back from getting swept at Oregon State last week with a sweep of its own, at home against Southern California, helping it return to the top 10 at No. 9.
Auburn jumped six spots to No. 11 after taking two of three from South Carolina, which fell five spots to No. 12. Arkansas moved up five spots to No. 15 after winning its second straight SEC road series, and Oklahoma leapt eight spots to No. 16 after winning two of three from Texas Tech, which fell three spots to No. 6. Southern Miss also made a big move, climbing eight places to No. 17 after a 5-0 week.
Stanford and Florida State tumbled 10 spots apiece to No. 21 and No. 22, respectively, after both got swept at home. Ole Miss and UL Lafayette fell out of the rankings after both posted losing records for the second week in a row, though the Cajuns did win their weekend series against South Alabama.
Wake Forest entered the rankings for the first time this season at No. 23 after winning its first-ever road series at Miami. Maryland also returned to the Top 25 following a sweep of Rutgers. The Terps check in at No. 24.
