College baseball rankings: East Carolina powers into Top 10 in latest D1 Baseball standings
Florida remained No. 1 in the D1Baseball Top 25 rankings after winning its eighth weekend series in eight tries this season. Stanford posted a 3-2 week and held on to the No. 2 spot even after dropping its first series of the year, on the road against a ranked opponent (UCLA). Arkansas climbed two spots to No. 3 after sweeping then-No. 19 Auburn, which fell out of the Top 25 after losing its third straight series.
NC State and East Carolina were the big movers in the top half of the rankings. The Wolfpack surged four spots to No. 4 after winning a road series at Louisville, giving the Pack its eighth straight winning weekend and keeping it atop the ACC standings. ECU jumped five spots to No. 7 after traveling cross-country and taking two of three at Washington.
Other climbers this week included Oklahoma and UCLA, who moved up four spots apiece to No. 16 and No. 17, respectively. The Sooners won a road series at TCU, while the Bruins handed Stanford its first series loss of the year. Missouri State also moved up four spots to No. 19, and Wichita State leapt five spots to No. 20.
Two teams entered the Top 25 this week, replacing Auburn and Missouri. North Carolina returned to the rankings at No. 21 after winning a road series at Miami, while Texas A&M re-entered at No. 22 after taking two of three at home from LSU, which fell six spots to No. 23.
