D1Baseball Top 25 Rankings: April 27
LSU remained atop the D1Baseball Top 25 rankings after winning a marquee series against then-No. 2 Texas A&M in Baton Rouge. The Aggies fell two spots to No. 4, as Pac-12 leader UCLA and ACC leader Louisville moved up one spot apiece, to No. 2 and No. 3, respectively.
TCU climbed two spots to No. 5 after sweeping Texas, while Arizona State fell one place to No. 6 after a 3-1 week that included a single loss to Tennessee Tech, which opened the weekend outside the top 200 in the Ratings Percentage Index. The Horned Frogs also won a head-to-head series at ASU early this season.
Florida State and Vanderbilt moved into the top 10 after winning Top 25 series against Miami and Missouri, respectively. The Seminoles climbed two spots to No. 9, while the Commodores moved up two places to No. 10. Florida fell five spots to No. 11 after dropping a home series to Kentucky, and Southern California dropped from No. 10 to No. 12 after losing two of three at Oregon State.
Two teams moved into the Top 25. North Carolina, which has won 12 of its last 14 games and allowed just one run in a three-game sweep of Boston College this weekend, jumped into the rankings at No. 22. Ohio State joined the rankings at No. 25 after a 5-0 week, giving the Buckeyes momentum heading into their showdown series against No. 8 Illinois this coming weekend. UC Irvine and UNC Wilmington dropped out of the Top 25 after 1-3 weeks.
