Preseason No. 1 Vanderbilt returned to the pinnacle of the D1Baseball Top 25 rankings three weeks after relinquishing the spot. LSU’s one-week stay atop the rankings ended after the Tigers lost a home series to Kentucky, dropping them to No. 5. Texas A&M, Florida and TCU each moved up a spot to round out the top five, which still features four teams from the Southeastern Conference.

The rest of the top 10 remained the same, but there was some movement in the teens. Florida State, UC Santa Barbara and Virginia moved up to Nos. 11-13, respectively, taking advantage of bad weeks for Maryland, South Carolina and Texas — all of whom tumbled in the wake of three-loss weeks. The Gamecocks fell the most (nine spots to No. 21) after losing a home series to Georgia, giving them six losses in their last eight games. Maryland slid six spots to No. 17, and Texas dropped eight spots to No. 24.

It was a rough week for teams at the back of the rankings, as Indiana, North Carolina, Oregon State and Oregon all fell out of the rankings after losing series. They were replaced by Nebraska (No. 18), Dallas Baptist (No. 19), Oklahoma State (No. 20) and Arizona (No. 25). The Cornhuskers and Cowboys were ranked in the preseason Top 25, but the Patriots and Wildcats are making their debuts in the rankings.

D1Baseball editors Aaron Fitt and Kendall Rogers compile the Top 25 rankings. Records are through games of March 29.
