Arkansas remains number one in the College Baseball Nation Top 50 after a series win against SEC West foe, Texas A&M. The Razorbacks have now spent seven weeks atop the poll this season. Vanderbilt stands pat at number two after a series win on the road at rival, Tennessee, while Mississippi State moves up a spot to number three. The Bulldogs took two out of three games from Ole Miss. Mississippi State has not dropped a series to Ole Miss since 2015.
East Carolina slips one spot to number four after its weekend series at Houston was cancelled due to COVID protocol. Texas, with a 5-0 week, remains at number five.
#6 Texas Tech, #7 Louisville, #8 Notre Dame, #9 Oregon, and #10 TCU round out the top ten. Oregon came from behind in its series at USC to earn a winning weekend. TCU earned one of the most impressive series wins of the weekend, sweeping Oklahoma State in Fort Worth.
There was little movement elsewhere in the top 25, as no teams dropped out from a week ago. However, the bottom half of the top 50 saw quite the shakeup. Michigan rises to #29 and is the highest ranked Big Ten team. No team from the Big Ten has cracked the top 25 this season.
#40 Alabama, #43 UC Irvine, #44 Liberty, #47 Florida Gulf Coast, and #49 Tulane are all new to this week's top 50. The Green Wave earned a marquee series win, sweeping Wichita State in New Orleans.
