Texas A&M Baseball reaches No. 1 for second consecutive year

Fun times at Olsen Field.

During the Easter weekend Rob Childress' Texas A&M baseball club took two of three games from then-No. 10 LSU, boosting its record to 21-3 (4-2 SEC) and earning a leap from No. 2 to the coveted No. 1 spot in the D1Baseball weekly rankings.

D1B editors Aaron Fitt and Kendall Rogers write:

For the first time this season, there’s a change at the top of the D1Baseball Top 25 rankings. Preseason No. 1 Florida’s six-week reign at the top ended with a series loss at Kentucky, paving the way for Texas A&M to take over as No. 1.

The Aggies improved to 21-3 overall with a series win against then-No. 10 LSU (which fell five spots to No. 15). Texas A&M has opened the season with six straight winning weekends; the only other team in the Top 25 that has not had a losing weekend is No. 9 Florida State.

The Aggies also ranked No. 1 in the newest Baseball America poll and March 28 USA Today rankings.

It marks the second straight year A&M has held the honor of nation's top-ranked team.

Last season the Aggies opened on a 24-game winning streak and were 27-2 when they hit the top spot in the rankings, spending two weeks at No. 1 between three major polls.

This time around, Florida — which entered the weekend on a 16-game winning streak — dropped a series against Kentucky to cede the No. 1 spot to the Aggies. The Gators dropped to No. 2.

Their opponent this weekend? No. 1 Texas A&M.

Yes, also for the second consecutive year, the Aggies will be involved in a 1 vs. 2 regular season series showdown. In 2015 No. 2 A&M visited Baton Rouge, where No. 1 LSU took two of three games in a hotly contested series.

Four of the top five teams in the D1B rankings are from the SEC (is that good?). The Aggies and Gators are followed by No. 3 Vanderbilt and No. 5 South Carolina.

No. 11 Mississippi State, No. 13 Ole Miss, No. 15 LSU and No. 18 Arkansas round out the eight SEC teams in the top 25.
