Poll conducted and distributed by the AVCA

** The AVCA does not recognize any rankings below 25 in the poll as it is not possible when voters only select the top 25 teams and only teams with two or more votes are listed. It would be accurate and logical to say "listed" instead of "ranked" in the poll for spots below 25.

NEXT POLL: Dec. 22, 2004
