The Top 25 NCAA Division I Rankings were released on April 22 from D1Baseball.com, with Texas A&M staying in the No.1 spot for the second consecutive week.

Texas A&M (35-5) went 3-1 last week with wins against Air Force and taking two out of three against No. 18 Alabama in Tuscaloosa.

The University of Arkansas (34-6) remained No. 2 after going 4-1 last week. They beat Texas Tech twice and took two out of three against No. 20 South Carolina in Columbia.

Tennessee (33-7) moved up one spot from No.4 to No.3 after winning two out of three against last week’s No.3, Kentucky in Lexington. Tennessee also beat Bellarmine.

Clemson University (32-7) moved up one spot from No.6 to No.5 after beating Charlotte and took two out of three against Pittsburgh in Clemson.

Wake Forest (26-13) went 2-2 and moved up four spots from No.12 to No.8. They took two out of three from Florida State in Winston-Salem and lost to UNC Wilmington.

Coastal Carolina (27-12) had the most significant rise in the rankings, moving six spots from No. 19 to No.13. They went 3-1, beating last week’s No.15 North Carolina University and winning two out of three against Louisiana in Conway.

After not being ranked last week, Oklahoma University (24-14) is at No.18; NC State (22-15) is at No.21; and Indiana State (29-8) is at No.25.

The three programs that dropped out of the Top 25 NCAA Division I rankings are West Virginia (23-16), previously ranked at No.22; Virginia Tech (25-12), previously ranked at No.23; and Old Dominion and Dallas Baptist (28-10) previously ranked at No.25.

The University of Oregon (28-12) had the biggest fall in the rankings, dropping six spots from No.16 to No.22. Oregon beat San Francisco 7-3 on April 22 in San Francisco.

There are three top-25 matchups this weekend, including one series of two top-10 teams.

No. 10 Florida State travels to No.6 Duke in the marquee matchup of the weekend.

No.4 Kentucky will continue their tough stretch as they travel to Columbia to take on No. 20 South Carolina for a three-game set.

In the Pacific Northwest, No. 22 Oregon will take on No.9 Oregon State, which will look to get back on track after losing 4 of 5 last week.

 

Each of these series can be found on the WatchESPN app.
