COLLEGE BASEBALL TICKET: Week in review (winners/losers, what we learned) -- Coming soon



Arkansas appeared to be in some serious trouble after dropping an SEC road series to Mississippi two weekends ago. However, the Razorbacks rose to the occasion in a big way this past weekend with a huge road series win over Florida. For that and more, the Hogs were one of the biggest movers in the latest Perfect Game Top 50 rankings.

While the Razorbacks moved from No. 20 to No. 15 following the excellent weekend, the Gators, which lost two of three to the Hogs, moved from No. 4 to No. 8. Baylor moved up one spot from No. 3 to No. 2, while LSU, South Carolina and Kentucky are right with each other at No's 3, 4 and 5, respectively. UK dropped three spots after dropping a tough road series to Vanderbilt over the weekend.

Also worth noting, Stanford is back in the top 10 after winning a huge road series at UCLA, while Oregon moved from No. 17 to No. 13 following its home series sweep over California. Louisville was another big riser this week, vaulting from No. 28 to No. 21 after thrashing in-state rival Kentucky in midweek action before taking two of three from Connecticut over the weekend in Big East action.

Teams that dropped out of this week's rankings include California, Wake Forest and Liberty, while new entrants include St. John's, College of Charleston and Auburn at No's 47, 48 and 50, respectively.

The PG Top 50 is released each Monday morning during the college baseball season.
