    Well, that didn’t last very long.

    After being knocked out of the No. 1 spot, the Florida Gators are back on top of the Baseball America Top 25 rankings.

    Florida swept Texas A&M in their three-game series over the weekend (7-4, 7-2 and 10-7) and knocked the Aggies down to No. 3.

    Gators first baseman Peter Alonso went 8-for-12 with two home runs and five RBIs in the series.

    Florida Atlantic hopped up from No. 25 to No. 18 after sweeping Old Dominion in a three-game series (10-7, 3-1 and 11-0).

    That allowed Rice to slide in at No. 25 after being unranked last week.

    Four other teams found their way into the top 25 after spending last week on the outside looking in: No. 21 Clemson, No. 22 East Carolina, No. 23 Texas Tech and No. 25 Rice.

    UC Santa Barbara also made a significant jump from No. 18 to No. 12 after taking two games in a three-game set with Long Beach State. The 49ers’ 2-0 victory on Sunday helped limit the damage, as they fell from No. 17 to No. 20.
