Tennessee suffered its first series loss of the year and though they dropped two games this week, they remain at No. 1 due to their present body of work. The gap between Tennessee and the rest of the country closed a bit, but the Volunteers are still No. 1 in terms of RPI, ELO, along with leading the country in ERA by about a full run and are top-five in scoring. Oregon State is the only other team we legitimately considered at No. 1, as the Beavers finished off a 4-0 week over in-state rival Oregon. Sitting at 38-9, the Beavers have a legitimate claim for No. 1 and lead the country in fielding and are in the top-10 in terms of ERA.

The rest of the top-7 remains mostly unchanged as all the teams in that range took care of business, along with Arkansas winning a tough-fought SEC series despite a 2-2 record on the week. Louisville jumps to No. 8 after a wet weekend, weather across the country was crazy, and following the Cardinals are LSU at No. 9 and Texas A&M at No. 10.



New teams this week include Oklahoma at No. 21, Texas State at No. 24, and East Carolina at No. 25. The Sooners look like a legitimate threat to the Big 12 as they knocked off TCU this weekend and continue what is a strong postseason resume they’re building. Texas State rejoins the rankings and they sit atop a contentious Sun Belt that will likely fight for multiple postseason bids, while ECU has righted the ship from their early season struggles, hasn’t lost a conference series yet, and sits at 14-4 in AAC play, good for first place in the conference.
