CB TICKET: Weekly winners and losers


Florida and Florida State have played two hard-fought midweek games so far this season.

It's only fitting the two in-state rivals headline this week's PG Top 50 rankings. Florida remains No. 1 in the latest rankings despite a road series loss to Mississippi. The Gators defeated the Seminoles in midweek action to begin the week. Meanwhile, FSU swept Virginia Tech at home after dropping the tough bout to the Gators.

UCLA vaulted from No. 6 to No. 4 following another strong showing against Utah, while Arizona moved up four spots from No. 10 to No. 6 after taking a huge home series from Stanford. Also worth noting, LSU moved from No. 18 to No. 12 after sweeping Arkansas at home, while Ole Miss moved from No. 20 to No. 13 after the home series win over Florida. Auburn also made more strides this week, moving from No. 32 to No. 25 after yet another SEC series win, this time over Mississippi State.

Teams that dropped out of this week's rankings include College of Charleston and Maryland, while teams entering the rankings include Sam Houston State and Clemson.

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