Miami surges into top 10, three teams enter D1Baseball top 25 rankings

Top college baseball freshmen in 2022, so far

Fresh off its first No. 1 ranking in program history, Tennessee didn’t disappoint in a weekend series against rival Vanderbilt, outscoring the Commodores 16-4 on the way to a series sweep. For that reason, the Volunteers remain in the top spot in the latest D1Baseball Top 25 Rankings.

Vandy, which has now lost two of its last three series, dropped from the top 10 to No. 16, while Arkansas, Virginia, Texas Tech and Oregon State round out the top five. The Hogs won a home series over Mississippi State, Virginia won two of three at home from Georgia Tech, Texas Tech took care of business against Kansas on the road and the Beavers dropped a tight series at home against Stanford. 

Miami made a sizable jump in the latest rankings, vaulting from No. 17 to No. 8 after winning yet another ACC series, while Texas State, which swept another series and improved to 23-6 overall, moved from No. 20 to the Top 10 for the first time in program history. Georgia also made a sizable jump, going from No. 23 to No. 14 following a home series sweep over rival Florida.

Three new teams entered the latest Top 25 Rankings — UCLA, Southern Miss and NC State. UCLA pitched at an extremely high level in a series sweep over Oregon this past weekend, Southern Miss took a crucial home series against C-USA rival Louisiana Tech and NC State took a key road series from Clemson. Florida, Oregon and Georgia Tech dropped out of the latest rankings.

D1Baseball editors and national writers determine the Top 25 rankings.
