College baseball composite top 25: Texas A&M overtakes Florida as No. 1

The Gators lost their first series of the year to Kentucky while the Aggies took down top-10 LSU.

With the bases loaded and one out in the bottom of the 10th, Florida reliever Brady Singer's 0-2 pitch sailed wide of the scrambling catcher's desperate mitt swipe, the Gators' No. 1 ranking sinking along with it. Singer's wild pitch handed Kentucky a shocking series upset over the country's unanimous No. 1 -- the first time Florida has lost a series this year -- and paved the way for Texas A&M to ascend to the top spot.

The Aggies, for their part, wrestled a tough home series away from then-No. 10 LSU to improve to 21-3.

The SEC's biggest winner was South Carolina, which not only swept Ole Miss in Oxford, but led in all but two of the 27 innings. The Gamecocks staff flat out embarrassed a bewildered Rebel lineup and its offense pounded out 34 hits over three games. That shot them into the top 10 of all three major polls and into the No. 6 spot in the composite rankings, a 12-spot climb from last week.

A couple of other big movers came in the ACC. Miami, which knocked off a top-10 Louisville team two weeks ago, made it a clean sweep of then-No. 14 Clemson to establish dominance of the conference. Louisville, meanwhile, bounced back to grab two of three from top-15 Virginia.

Here's where we sit after six weeks of college baseball:
