College baseball rankings: Arkansas claims top spot in the latest Top 25

Watch: These are the plays of the week in college baseball

Arkansas returned to No. 1 in the D1Baseball Top 25 rankings after spending the last three weeks at No. 2. The Hogs won two of three on the road against then-No. 3 Ole Miss to return to the top spot. Vanderbilt fell one spot to No. 2 after dropping its first series of the year, at home against Georgia.

Texas, Mississippi State and Tennessee moved up one spot apiece to round out the top five. The Rebels fell three places to No. 6, while Louisville, Texas Tech and East Carolina held steady in the next three slots. Notre Dame rounds out the top 10, up three spots from last week after taking two of three from then-No. 15 Georgia Tech.

Big climbers this week include Oregon, Arizona, Virginia Tech and Pittsburgh. The Ducks moved up four spots to No. 15 after sweeping then-No. 20 Oregon State. The Wildcats and Hokies jumped six spots apiece to Nos. 16 and 17, respectively, while Pittsburgh vaulted five spots to No. 19 after sweeping then-No. 18 Miami. The Hurricanes are one of four teams that fell out of the rankings this week, joining Georgia Tech, Oregon State and UCLA.

The four newcomers in the rankings are No. 20 Stanford (which won a series from UCLA), No. 21 Charlotte, No. 22 Old Dominion and No. 23 Indiana State.
