Arkansas fell in the USA Today Baseball Coaches Poll for the third consecutive week, but remained in the top 10 for the 30th consecutive week.

The Razorbacks (38-16) fell five spots to No. 10 following a series loss at Alabama last week. The Crimson Tide clinched the series with an 18-5 victory on Saturday. 

Alabama also won 8-6 after the Razorbacks won the opener 7-3. 

Arkansas has fallen seven spots since it was ranked third three weeks ago. The Razorbacks have lost six of their last 10 games against Missouri State, Auburn, Vanderbilt and Alabama. 

There are six SEC teams ranked this week, led by unanimous No. 1 Tennessee. Also ranked are Texas A&M (9), LSU (20), Auburn (21) and Vanderbilt (24). 

Georgia, ranked 25th last week, fell out of the poll after a series loss to Missouri. 

The Razorbacks have been ranked in 74 consecutive coaches polls dating to 2017. The coaches poll is the ranking of record for the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
