Tennessee swept Vanderbilt over the weekend, and as expected, the Vols remained No. 1 in the latest Baseball America poll.

The Vols have a program-record 19-game winning streak. The 9-0 start in SEC play, the second best for any team since the conference expanded to 12 teams in 1991. This is their second straight week at No. 1 in the rankings.

Virginia rose to No. 2 following its series win against Georgia Tech, while the top 5 rounded out with Arkansas, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech.

Arkansas hit 4 home runs to overpower Mississippi State and clinch its 13th consecutive SEC series win at Baum-Walker Stadium. The Hogs own the league’s longest active consecutive series win streak (13) as well as the SEC’s longest consecutive home series win streak (10).

Ole Miss beat Kentucky for its second road SEC series win, and improved to 19-8, and 4-5 in the SEC.

Some SEC teams re-joined the poll, while others fell out.

Georgia and UCLA returned to the rankings after short absences at Nos. 17 and 18. Southern Mississippi debuts this season at No. 22 after a series win against Louisiana Tech. Meanwhile, Auburn entered the Top 25 at No. 25 following its second straight road series win.

Following the series sweep to Tennessee, Vanderbilt fell 8 spots to No. 19.
