It's the year of surprises in the ACC.
Maryland made a huge statement a few weeks ago with a road series win over UCLA. But even after the hot start, the Terrapins were trumped over the weekend when they were swept on the road by upstart Wake Forest, which entered this week's PG Top 50 rankings.
Also in the ACC, N.C. State made a bold statement over the weekend with an impressive home series win over Georgia Tech, while Virginia Tech's bid to earn an impressive road series win over Virginia failed.
While there's much movement when it comes to ACC teams, there were only a few changes in the top 10. North Carolina moved from No. 6 to No. 4 after sweeping Clemson, Florida State moved from No. 11 to No. 6 after yet another impressive weekend, while Cal State Fullerton moved from No. 15 to No. 9 after earning a huge road series win over Texas A&M.
Texas State and East Carolina entered the top 25 of our rankings. The Bobcats earned a road series win over Texas-Arlington after getting a midweek win over Rice, while the Pirates had an outstanding weekend at the Alabama tournament.
Teams that dropped out of this week's rankings include Gonzaga, Boston College, St. Mary's and Florida Atlantic, while teams entering the rankings include Wake Forest, Kentucky, Appalachian State and Santa Clara.
The PG Top 50 is released each Monday morning during the college baseball season.
