College Baseball Rankings: Virginia Moves To No. 1 While Vanderbilt Falls

The Virginia Cavaliers are the new No. 1 team in Baseball America's latest top 25 results. The Cavaliers swept Duke in a three-game series, outscoring the Blue Devils, 31-6. Lefty ace Danny Hultzen continued his dominance this season with seven innings of four-hit, no-run ball. He struck out nine batters. The Cavs won midweek games against Georgetown and Coastal Carolina, as well.

Previously No. 1, Vanderbilt dropped two of three games to now-No.2 South Carolina. The Commodores dropped to No. 4. Oregon State jumped six spots to No. 3 following their three-game sweep of Stanford, the Cardinal dropping out of the top 25.

The North Carolina Tar Heels fell from No. 7 all the way to No. 14. The Tar Heels dropped a three-game series over the weekend to in-state rival North Carolina State.

In the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper, Virginia stayed at No. 1, while Vanderbilt dropped to No. 3 behind South Carolina. TCU is ranked No. 10 in BA's poll and No. 11 in the CBN, but there are some concerns cropping up over starter Matt Purke, who experienced a drop in velocity over the weekend.

Here is BA's top 25:
