Arkansas stayed put at No. 2 after winning a hard-fought series against Auburn, and Ole Miss stayed at No. 4 despite dropping two of three on the road at Florida.

South Carolina and Florida moved up three spots apiece to 11 and 12 after winning series at Georgia and vs. Ole Miss, respectively. There weren’t any other big climbers in the rankings, though a number of teams moved up a spot or two. Georgia Tech fell nine spots to No. 15 after dropping a series to Virginia, and UCLA tumbled from No. 10 to No. 21 after losing a home series to Washington. The last four teams — Arizona, Virginia Tech, Pittsburgh and Michigan — remained static.
