DURHAM,
N.C.–The top four teams remained unchanged in Baseball America’s weekly Top 25 college baseball rankings, as each won their respective super-regional. No. 1 Rice, atop the rankings for the seventh consecutive week, was the lone top four team to lose a super-regional game, but has now won 37 of their last 40 games.

North Carolina reentered the top five with a sweep of Alabama, which slides to No. 10 in this week’s rankings. The Tar Heels will be making their first appearance in Omaha since 1989 with the series victory. Georgia Tech also swept its super-regional, moving up to No. 7, returning to the College World Series for the third time.

The week’s biggest jump belongs to Miami, which went from unranked two weeks ago to No. 8 this week. The Hurricanes upset Mississippi in three games, ending the Rebels season and dropping the school to No. 11 in the rankings.

Several other teams moved up despite super-regional losses, including No. 9 Oklahoma, No. 13 South Carolina, and No. 17 Oral Roberts. The Sooners fell to Rice, but not before beating the Owls and extending the series to a third game. South Carolina did the same to Georgia, but the Bulldogs’ Monday victory pushed them to No. 6. Oral Roberts had leads in both losses to Clemson, proving they belonged this late in the postseason.
