College Top 25: Plenty of chaos

Kendall Rogers        

It was the wildest weekend of the year in college baseball, as several ranked teams suffered series losses. Florida State, though, bounced back from a midweek loss to rival Florida, hitting the road and sweeping a three-game series from Boston College to stay atop the latest Perfect Game College Top 25.

Other programs weren't so lucky. Though the teams in the top seven of the rankings remain the same, with South Carolina leapfrogging Louisiana-Lafayette as the only change, there was a lot of movement elsewhere. Of the 18 remaining teams outside of the top seven, four failed to win a single game last week, while 12 of the 18 had unsuccessful weekends.

Louisville, Mississippi State and Houston are the newest top-10 clubs in the latest rankings.  The Cardinals went from No. 12 to No. 8 after another good weekend, Mississippi State went from No. 13 to No. 9 after winning its third Southeastern Conference series, and Houston moved from No. 15 to No. 10 after a good weekend against Memphis.

Texas vaulting from No. 22 to No. 12 and UNLV and Clemson vaulting six spots each was the biggest upward movement in the rankings, while Cal State Fullerton, for instance, dropped from No. 11 to No. 22 after losing yet another series, this time on the road against Wichita State.

North Carolina State, North Carolina and Auburn dropped from the rankings. The Wolfpack was swept at home by Miami, UNC was swept on the road by Duke and Auburn dropped a tough and surprising home series to Missouri.

The newest entrants to the rankings include No. 18 Washington, No. 20 Alabama and No. 24 Florida. The Huskies improved to 20-5 with a road series sweep over USC and are winners of 10-straight, the Crimson Tide did a clean home sweep of Ole Miss, and Florida had a terrific week that included a midweek triumph over Florida State and weekend series sweep over LSU.

The Perfect Game College Top 25 is released every Monday during the season.
