College baseball rankings: Four teams enter rankings after tumultuous week in D1Baseball poll

Top college baseball freshmen in 2022, so far

Despite losing its first SEC game of the year on Friday, Tennessee remained No. 1 in the D1Baseball Top 25 rankings after winning a series against Alabama to improve to 33-3 overall. Oregon State moved up one spot to No. 2 after sweeping Long Beach State. Oklahoma State and Arkansas climbed two spots apiece to Nos. 3 and 4, respectively.

Then things got messy in the rankings, as 15 of last week’s Top 25 clubs lost their weekends. Miami fell three spots to No. 5 after dropping two of three at Virginia Tech, which took advantage of the carnage and vaulted 13 spots to No. 8. Southern Miss moved up five spots to No. 6 after running its winning streak to nine games and opening up a two-game lead in the Conference USA standings.

Stanford made the week’s biggest move, catapulting 15 spots to No. 7 after winning a road series at UCLA, which fell one spot to No. 13. The Cardinal has recovered from a slow start and is now 11-7 in the Pac-12, with series wins on the road against both Oregon State and UCLA.

Four teams entered the Top 25 this week: Oregon, which swept Washington to move into a first-place tie with Oregon State, returned to the rankings at No. 20. TCU, which swept then-No. 4 Texas Tech to improve to 10-5 in the Big 12, rejoined the rankings at No. 21. Maryland checked back in at No. 24, and Georgia Southern made its season debut in the rankings at No. 25 after sweeping a key Sun Belt series against Georgia State.
