College Top 25: May 2

DURHAM, N.C.—Virginia won its ninth weekend series, twice shutting out Boston College in Chestnut Hill, to remain atop the Baseball America Top 25 for the third consecutive week.

The top five teams—Virginia, South Carolina, Oregon State, Vanderbilt and Florida—went a combined 15-2 and remained in the same spots. No new teams entered the top 10, though Texas A&M fell three spots to No. 9 after losing a series at Missouri.

A week full of upsets and closely contested conference series brought no big winners in the Baseball America Top 25. Southern Mississippi, Oklahoma State and Connecticut were the biggest gainers, all moving up three spots after weekend series victories.

Fresno State took the biggest fall in this week’s rankings, tumbling from No. 13 to No. 19 after losing twice to Hawaii, though the Bulldogs can salvage a series split Monday.

For the third week in a row, three new teams entered the Baseball America Top 25. Clemson took two out of three games against then-No. 12 Georgia Tech and returned to the rankings for the first time since March 21, when it was ranked No. 19. Gonzaga also moves back into the Top 25 after a week’s absence, sweeping Santa Clara on the road to begin a 13-game road trip. Texas State won a series at McNeese State to remain tied for the lead in the Southland Conference and enters the rankings at No. 25.
