Lafayette, Co. – There have been several changes to the Top 20 rankings this week, but no new teams have entered the Top 20. The biggest rankings change this week came in the Top 10, with #9 Arkansas State switching spots with #10 Arizona. While, Arizona did not play this weekend Arkansas State came within a hair of beating #5 Lindenwood this weekend. This performance warranted their bump in the rankings.

D1A newcomers #19 UC Davis came up against the #1 team in the country, Saint Mary’s. Saint Mary’s showed their pedigree and put Davis away convincingly, 78-0. The margin was enough for UC Davis to get pushed back a spot and let Utah climb back to 18th, the position they held the week prior.

The final change in this week’s rankings, was again a one on one swap. The swap was between now #13 Central Washington and #14 San Diego State. Central Washington has been going about their business quietly this Spring, but after a few hiccups early in the season they seemed to have steadied the ship and the voters decided to reward that with a bump in the rankings.

1 St Mary’s (1)

2 Life (2)

3 Cal (3)
