Interestingly, Arkansas, which has had a deluge of injuries throughout the spring, moved up from No. 3 to No. 2 following a series win over South Carolina, while Florida entered the top five. As for the rest of the Top 10, West Virginia and Clemson at No’s 6 and 7 is worth noting. The Mountaineers continue to have a stranglehold on the Big 12 after taking a home series over Texas Tech, while the Tigers moved from No. 16 to No. 7 after sweeping Virginia Tech on the road. Oregon State also joined the Top 10, going from No. 15 to No. 10 after taking care of business against UCLA over the weekend.

Vanderbilt and South Carolina, which have struggled over the past couple of weeks and have several key injuries, dropped to No’s 12 and 13 this week, while Duke dropped to No. 16 after an ugly week and Tennessee vaulted from No. 23 to No. 18 after taking a series from Kentucky at home. 

UTSA and Oregon each dropped out of the rankings this week after getting swept this past weekend. The two new entrants include Washington and Oklahoma State. The Huskies swept Oregon on the road and are second place in the Pac-12, while the Cowboys are finally getting healthy again and are coming off a home series win over Kansas State.
