As a team, Alabama is ranked fifth in the nation. Georgia remains at number one while Utah, sixth last week, jumps back to second this week. Florida is third, followed by Iowa State.

Oklahoma drops to sixth this week while Stanford and LSU flip flop, with the Cardinal taking over seventh and the Tigers dropping to eighth. Michigan and UCLA are ninth and 10th respectively.
