College baseball rankings continue to be a hot topic after four weeks of action in the SEC.
The league placed nine teams in the new D1Baseball.com Top 25, which was released on Monday. Perhaps more impressive than more than half of the league being included in the rankings is that five SEC teams remain in the Top 10.
Florida, which is the defending national champion, dropped out of the top spot after dropping a pair of games during Week 4. The Gators lost two midweek games to UCF before rallying for a three-game sweep of Rhode Island over the weekend. The two losses were enough to allow Oregon State to pass Florida for the top spot in the new poll.
Kentucky continued its climb in the rankings, moving up two spots from No. 6 to No. 4 after taking two of three games in a series with No. 6 Texas Tech. Arkansas held firm at No. 5 in the rankings to give the league three teams in the Top 5 of the country.
Ole Miss and Texas A&M each moved up one spot this week, claiming No. 8 and No. 9 in the poll respectively.
Vanderbilt moved up two spots after beating UCLA and TCU in Los Angeles over the weekend, but the Commodores weren’t perfect on the west coast trip. They lost a close contest to Long Beach State on Friday.
A week after debuting on the Top 25 at No. 18, Auburn continued its climb to No. 15 in the rankings in spite of suffering its first loss of the regular season.Mississippi State and LSU each moved up two spots in the poll.
