DURHAM, N.C.‹North Carolina split two games with North Carolina State, which
was enough to keep the Tar Heels at No. 1 in the Baseball America College
Top 25 rankings.
The third game of the much-anticipated series between the Tar Heels and
Wolfpack was rained out, but the split was also enough for N.C. State to
move into the top five, coinciding with Virginia¹s series loss to Virginia
Tech. Meanwhile, Vanderbilt returned to the No. 2 ranking after winning four
games against ranked opponents, including a weekend sweep of Mississippi
State. Louisiana State fell to No. 3, dropping a series at home to South
Carolina.
Four teams joined the rankings this week, led by South Alabama at No. 20.
The Jaguars have won seven straight games and lead the Sun Belt Conference.
Florida also returns to the rankings for the first times since Feb. 18 after
winning its third straight Southeastern Conference series. Kentucky returns
after a one-week absence at No. 24, and Virginia Tech rejoins the rankings
after a three-week absence.
The SEC leads all conferences with eight ranked teams this week. The
Atlantic Coast Conference follows with six teams, though four of them are in
the top 10. The Pacific-12 (four ranked teams) is the only other league with
multiple teams in the Top 25.
The staff of Baseball America determines the Top 25 rankings. Records
indicated are through games of April 28 and do not include ties.
