After the insanity of last week, things returned to a sense of normalcy as the postseason picture becomes a bit clearer. Teams on the fringe are feeling the heat and every game result has fans checking the updated RPI to see where their club stands on the national landscape. Four of the top 5 teams hold on to their lofty ranking, while 9 of the top 10 are the same save some shuffling within. The LSU Tigers (35-8) continue to handle the target on their back and sit atop the top 25, as well as the SEC West. Wake Forest (37-6) leads the nation in wins, had a perfect week and moves up to No.2 in the new poll. No. 3 South Carolina (35-8) had their first slip up in a while and No. 4 Florida (35-10) bounces back with a clean (4-0) week. The Arkansas Razorbacks (33-11) are back at No.5 with their weekend sweep of Texas A&M.

Some teams are making statements and putting the nation on notice that they should be feared heading to the postseason. No team has been hotter than the Tennessee Vols (30-14) as they have swept back-to-back SEC series and are at No.6 this week. The No.11 Duke Blue Devils (31-13) are one of our biggest movers this week as they now sit atop the ACC Coastal and are building a case to be an NCAA Tournament host site. UConn (32-11) is up to No.12, Miami (28-16) continues to bounce around the poll landing at No.13 and Oregon (30-13) is now No.14 after their challenging (4-1) week. No.15 West Virginia (33-11) continue to collect wins and are now all alone in first place in the unpredictable Big-12.



Northeastern (35-7) makes another appearance in the poll at No.23 and have a one game lead in the Colonial Conference standings. Two teams are making their season debuts this week as well. The No.18 Clemson Tigers (28-17) have won four ACC series in a row and have rejuvenated their postseason hopes. While it has been quite a while, Cal State Fullerton (26-13) sneaks in at No.25 and have a 2.5 game lead in the Big West standings.
