DURHAM, N.C.--Texas blitzed through the College World Series with a 5-0 record to win its second national title in four years and finish atop the final Baseball America weekly Top 25 rankings. The Longhorns allowed just seven runs in the five games.



Florida moved to No. 2 after advancing to the championship round of the CWS, followed by Tulane, Baylor and Nebraska.


Arizona State jumped to No. 6 after earning three CWS wins a week after winning a super-regional at defending champion Cal State Fullerton.


Oregon State and Tennessee each went 0-2 in Omaha and rank seventh and eighth, respectively. Fullerton, Mississippi and Georgia Tech dropped one spot to accommodate Arizona State's rise into the Top 10, while the final 14 teams remained unchanged.


The staff of Baseball America determines the Top 25 rankings. Records indicated are through games of June 26 and do not include ties.
