College Top 25: Back in business

Kendall Rogers        

Virginia is back in familiar territory. The Cavaliers began the 2014 campaign atop the Perfect Game College Top 25 rankings. But while ACC counterpart Florida State had occupied the top spot in the rankings the past few weeks, the Cavaliers are back at No. 1 after a 3-1 week that included a home series win over Clemson.

Florida State dropped from the top spot to No. 4 after losing a tough road series to Georgia Tech, while the rest of the top five includes No. 2 Louisiana-Lafayette (4-1 last week), No. 3 Cal Poly (4-0 last week) and No. 5 Oregon State (2-1 last week). Meanwhile, the rest of the top 10 includes Texas, which moved from No. 8 to No. 6 following a road series sweep over Oklahoma, Louisville, which moved from No. 10 to No. 7 after sweeping Houston on the road, and LSU, South Carolina and of course, Washington, which entered the top 10 after improving to 12-3 in the Pac-12 with a series win over Stanford.


Alabama, Ole Miss, UC Santa Barbara and Miami made sizable jumps this week. 'Bama moved from No. 18 to No. 11 after a home series win over Auburn, Ole Miss went from No. 20 to No. 13 after a road series win over Mississippi State, UCSB went from No. 19 to No. 14 after taking two of three from Cal State Fullerton, and Miami moved from No. 25 to No. 17 after improving to an impressive 14-4 in the ACC.


Vanderbilt, Mississippi State and Kentucky dropped significantly in this week's rankings. The Commodores went from No. 9 to No. 19 after losing a home series to Texas A&M, Mississippi State dropped from No. 13 to No. 22 after losing a tough home series to Ole Miss and Kentucky dropped from No. 14 to No. 21 after losing a series to Missouri.


Tennessee, Cal State Fullerton and Arkansas fell out of the rankings after unsuccessful weekends, while Florida, Indiana and Pepperdine entered at No's 18, 24 and 25, respectively.


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