Chasing Omaha Top-25 – April 14, 2013

11161869-large

There are five weeks to go in the regular season, and the postseason picture is starting to take shape.

North Carolina remains a unanimous number one team in this week’s Chasing Omaha Top-25 Poll, and the top seven teams remained the same, despite Virginia’s series loss to Georgia Tech.

Arkansas moved into the Top-10 with an impressive performance, albeit a loss, against LSU this past weekend. The rest of the Top-10 remained the same.

Arizona and Clemson replaced Oklahoma State and Notre Dame in this week’s poll. The Wildcats and Tigers both got off to shaky starts, but have turned it on as of late to regain spots in the poll.

Rice had the biggest drop in the poll this week, falling six spots to No. 22 after a series loss to Central Florida. South Carolina dropped five spots after getting swept by Florida in Gainesville.

Georgia Tech jumped four spots to No. 17, the biggest climb of any team, after an impressive series win over No. 5 Virginia.
