Arkansas remains No. 1 in the D1Baseball Top 25 rankings for the fourth consecutive week. The Razorbacks swept a marquee series against LSU to improve to 8-1 in the SEC. The Tigers, meanwhile, fall 10 spots to No. 18 after dropping their third straight series to fall to 2-7 in the league.

Clemson moves up a spot to No. 2 after winning a road series at Miami, following big series wins against Florida State and at Duke, as well as a nonconference series win against South Carolina. Texas A&M and Tennessee also move up one spot apiece to Nos. 3 and 4 after winning their series against Auburn and Georgia, respectively. Oregon State falls three places to No. 5 after dropping its first series of the year at Southern California.

Florida holds steady at No. 6 after continuing its season-long pattern: losing midweek but rebounding to win two of three against a ranked opponent on the weekend. The Gators have done that three weeks in a row, posting three straight 2-2 weeks, but those weeks included series wins vs. Texas A&M, at LSU and vs. Mississippi State. As a result, Florida has moved neither up nor down in the rankings, instead simply holding its position.

Vanderbilt also holds firm at No. 7, while Dallas Baptist and Duke climb two spots apiece to No. 8 and No. 9. The Blue Devils took two of three from Virginia, which slides from No. 9 to No. 15. North Carolina also moves up after winning a series against a ranked foe; the Tar Heels jump four spots to No. 10 after sweeping Wake Forest on the road. The preseason No. 1 Demon Deacons tumble nine spots from 12 to 21.

Other big climbers this week include UC Irvine (up four spots to No. 16 after a road series sweep of Hawaii) and Kentucky (up seven spots to No. 17 after sweeping a road series against Ole Miss to improve to 8-1 in the SEC).

Two teams enter the rankings this week: Nebraska checks in at No. 24 after opening Big Ten play with a road series sweep of Northwestern, improving the Cornhuskers to 20-5. And UCF joins at No. 25 after taking two of three from Texas Tech, following quality series wins at Kansas and vs. Oklahoma State over the previous two weekends. The Knights are now the lone Big 12 team in the Top 25, as Kansas State and Oklahoma both fall out after losing weekends.

D1Baseball editors and national writers determine the Top 25 rankings. Records are through games of March 31.
