Despite having their 24-game winning streak snapped on Saturday, Texas A&M holds the top spot in this week’s rankings. Rob Childress’ squad bested the mark for SEC schools set by LSU in 2008 and fell two games short of the Aggies’ 26-game unbeaten string accomplished by the 1989 team that finished 58-7.

Despite having to go to extra innings to beat Southern and losing the first game of their series at Arkansas, LSU moves up two spots to number two while TCU falls to third after losing two of three at home to Oklahoma State.

Vanderbilt inches up one notch to number four after a solid week, including a series win at Auburn, and Florida rounds out the top five after a series loss at Mississippi and a mid-week win over Florida State.

UCLA, Arizona State, South Carolina, Florida State and Central Florida complete the top ten. Despite the Gamecocks’ series loss at Missouri and a 1-3 week, Chad Holbrook’s team remains in the upper echelon of the rankings as several clubs suffered a pair of losses during Week 6.

Maryland and Louisville were the only teams from last week’s top-25 to negotiate the week without a loss and move up eight spots each, as did California, despite a mid-week loss at San Francisco.

Virginia, who barely held on to a top-ten ranking last week despite four conference losses, drops 12 spots to #20 after losing a home series to Florida State. Rice tumbles from 9th to 22nd after a mid-week loss at Houston and barely winning the series finale at conference foe Old Dominion.

Texas Tech, North Carolina and Campbell dropped from this week’s top-25 as Houston and San Diego State return and Nevada makes its 2015 debut.
