College Top 25: Climb continues

Kendall Rogers        


ALSO SEE: This week's postseason snapshot 

Oklahoma State head coach Josh Holliday has his club on the fast track, and the Cowboys took charge of the Big 12 Conference over the weekend with a home series sweep over Kansas. For that and more, the Cowboys entered the latest Perfect Game College Top 25 rankings.


The Cowboys are the lone entrant into the latest rankings, with UNLV dropping out of the mix after getting swept on the road by Air Force. Much consideration also was given to UCF, TCU, Arkansas and Liberty, who are on the cusp of the latest rankings.


Looking atop the rankings, Virginia holds on to the top spot after going 3-1 last week with a weekend series win over North Carolina, while the rest of the top five includes Louisiana-Lafayette, Cal Poly, Florida State and Oregon State. Cal Poly had the most impressive weekend of the top five, sweeping Cal State Fullerton at home to take control of the Big West Conference title race.


Washington, Alabama and Florida entered the top 10 this week after impressive weekends, while Texas and Louisville dropped to No's 11 and 12, respectively, after struggling over the weekend. The Longhorns were swept at home by TCU, while the Cardinals dropped a road series to surging Central Florida. Meanwhile, Kentucky moved from No. 21 to No. 18 following a week that included a win over Louisville and weekend series win at Texas A&M, while Mississippi State is back in the top 20 after hitting the road and sweeping Missouri in a key SEC series.


OSU entered the rankings at No. 21, while there's much competition for those spots in the 20-25 range with Vanderbilt (down three spots), Clemson, Indiana and Pepperdine leading the way.

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