2018 NCAA DI Men’s Outdoor Track & Field National Rankings – Week 5

NEW ORLEANS – Relay Weekend has a way of shaking up the national landscape.

That was never more evident this past weekend as what happened in Des Moines, Iowa, Fayetteville, Arkansas and Philadelphia altered the most recent NCAA Division I Men’s Outdoor Track & Field National Team Rankings released Monday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

Eighteen teams that were in the top-25 in Week 4 shifted spots in Week 5.

The top-4 team remained the same, however, as Florida is still entrenched at No. 1, followed by No. 2 Texas Tech, No. 3 Alabama and No. 4 Texas A&M. This is the fifth week in a row that the Gators have been No. 1, which ties the program’s most successful stretch in the rankings.

Houston is back in the top-5 thanks to what it did this past weekend at the Penn Relays. The Cougars posted victories in both the 4×100 and 4×400, but the latter is where they made their money. Houston got the baton around in 3:01.82, which pushed them to the No. 2 spot in the Descending Order List. Kahmari Montgomery clocked a time of 43.38 on the anchor leg.

BYU jumped one spot from No. 8 to No. 7 after Scott Mecham improved his national billing in the 400 hurdles to sixth with a mark of 50.26A. The Cougars haven’t been ranked this high on the outdoor circuit since 2014 when they were sixth.

Arkansas climbed three spots between Week 4 and Week 5. The Razorbacks come in at No. 8 this week after putting together a strong weekend at the National Relay Championships. It was at John McDonnell Field where Arkansas’ 4×100 relay team notched the nation’s top time of 38.59, Kemar Mowatt moved up to No. 3 nationally in the 400 hurdles and the 4×400 relay team is now ranked fifth nationally at 3:03.36.

Three teams vaulted seven or more spots in the most recent index: Kentucky (No. 22 to No. 13), Nebraska (No. 27 to No. 20) and Arizona (No. 31 to No. 22). This is the highest Arizona has been ranked since 2014 and surged in the rankings thanks to Jordan Geist, who took over the national lead in the shot put with a heave of 20.41m (66-11½).

Be sure to check back over the next few weeks as the rankings continue to evolve in advance of the 2018 NCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field Championships, which will be held June 6-9 at Historic Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon.
