FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas is off to a perfect start in 2021 through seven games and it hasn’t gone unnoticed.
For the first time in history of Baseball America rankings, that go back to 1981, the Razorbacks are ranked No. 1 in the nation.

The SEC is dominant in the poll. Mississippi State is No. 2, Vanderbilt at 3 and Ole Miss No. 5. Louisville at No. 4 is the only non-SEC team in the Top 5.
