Another week in the books and it looks like the upper crust of the country is starting to solidify as we head closer and closer to conference tournament season. Tennessee stays atop the land after their toughest test yet in the Auburn Tigers, who look like a team poised to make a deep postseason run. Oregon State stays at No. 2 after defeating Utah, while Virginia Tech ascends to No. 3 after downing in-state rival Virginia. The Hokies are one of the stories of the season thus far and they have one of the most dynamic offenses in the country. Oklahoma State sweeps Texas to come in at No. 4, while Arkansas holds off Ole Miss to round out the top-5 at No. 5.

Miami drops to No. 6 after losing two in Atlanta, and this is more of a testament to the overall resume the Canes have built up to this point. UCONN holds pat at No. 7 as though the strength of schedule hurts them, the Huskies can’t stop winning. Southern Miss drops to No. 8 after losing two on the road at UAB, while UCLA and Florida State round out the top-10 at Nos. 9 and 10, respectively. The Bruins and Noles had two of the bigger sweeps this weekend as UCLA downed Arizona State and FSU ran TCU out of the state before the rains came on Sunday.



Two new teams enter the rankings as Texas A&M jumps to No. 16 and UC Santa Barbara enters at No. 23. The job that Head coach Jim Schlossnagle and staff have done cannot be overstated as Schloss is certainly in that top mix for Coach of the Year at this point. The Gauchos have been extremely consistent, especially in terms of run prevention as they look like one of the best teams on the West Coast.
