It's hard to have too much change for the initial Top 25 team update, as it's too early to make too many firm determinations by any of the action that unfolded over the Opening Weekend of the 2016 season. The top six teams remain the same, as the top five in particular each went unbeaten, with No. 2 Louisville and No. 4 Vanderbilt having especially impressive showings.

The three ranked teams from the Caravelle Resort Tournament in Myrtle Beach, S.C. – Virginia, North Carolina State and host Coastal Carolina – each went 2-1. The Cavaliers enjoyed a two-spot jump as a result while the Wolfpack and Chanticleers each saw themselves move up one spot each. Be sure to read Jheremy Brown's detailed recaps from each of the three days as linked above.

Two teams did drop out of the rankings, Oklahoma and Notre Dame, which allowed two undefeated SEC programs, Ole Miss and Arkansas, to move in. Both the Rebels and the Hogs took their respective series against solid opponents, Florida International and Central Michigan respectively, and looked impressive while doing so, thus the jump into the Top 25.

North Carolina enjoyed a four-spot jump up the rankings, now ranked 18th, after taking two of three games against host UCLA, who dropped a spot. Things won't get any easier for the Tar Heels as they return home to host No. 11 Oklahoma State next weekend, but Mike Fox and his crew are off to a very encouraging start to the 2016 season.

And don't forget to tune in to Perfect Game College Baseball tonight from 9-11 p.m. EST on SiriusXM College Sports Nation, channel 84. Perfect Game's Daron Sutton and Mike Rooney will wrap up the weekend that was while taking a look ahead to what looks to be a very intriguing second week of the 2016 college baseball season.
