DURHAM, N.C.–Rice remained atop Baseball America’s weekly Top 25 college baseball rankings for the fourth straight week. The Owls have won 28 of their last 30 games and set Conference USA records for winning percentage (.917), fewest losses (two) and series wins (eight).

Georgia moved into the Top 10 for the first time with a series win against Kentucky. The Bulldogs improved to No. 9, while the Wildcats slid to No. 10. Alabama, which swept a series against Tennessee to share the overall Southeastern Conference title with UK, sits right in front of both schools at No. 8.

Four teams joined the rankings this week, offering the Top 25 more West Coast representation. Fresno State and Hawaii, the top two teams in the Western Athletic Conference, move in at Nos. 21 and 24. Fresno State opened the year ranked but got swept out of the Top 25 in its first series. It now has 11 straight wins and a WAC regular season title. Hawaii enters the rankings for the first time since February 1999.

San Francisco and Elon both make their first-ever appearance in the Top 25. No. 23 San Francisco shared the West Coast Conference regular season title with Pepperdine, the first baseball championship in school history. No. 25 Elon set a school record with 42 wins and ended College of Charleston’s two-year run as Southern Conference champions.

The staff of Baseball America determines the Top 25 rankings. Records indicated are through games of May 21 and do not include ties.
