2018 NCAA DI Men’s Outdoor Track & Field National Rankings – Week 6

NEW ORLEANS – We’re in the eye of the storm right now in the NCAA Division I Men’s Outdoor Track & Field National Team Rankings.

There were very few changes in the most recent rankings released Monday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) – and that’s to be expected with the excitement of Relay Weekend gone and major conference championships this weekend.

Florida, Texas Tech and Alabama sit No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3 once again, but they’re followed by Houston at No. 4, instead of Texas A&M. The Cougars leapfrogged the Aggies and have occupied a spot in the top-5 in six of the seven sets of rankings this season.

Georgia, BYU and Arkansas all strengthened their spots in the top-8 from the previous week. The Bulldogs gained 12.3 points in the rankings, while the Cougars added 22.43 to their total, compared to 5.95 for the Razorbacks.

The biggest move in the top-20 belonged to Northern Arizona, which went from No. 46 to No. 14, its best outdoor ranking in program history. The Lumberjacks fared extremely well at the Payton Jordan Invitational. Tyler Day and Matthew Baxter both moved into the top-5 of the 10000 at No. 1 and No. 4, respectively. Andy Trouard turned in a time of 13:21.07 in the 5000 and is now ranked second in that event behind Justyn Knight of Syracuse.

There will be 20 conference championships this weekend in NCAA Division I, ranging from the SEC Championships in Knoxville, Tennessee, to the SoCon Championships in Cullowhee, North Carolina. By the end of the day Sunday there should be a bunch of changes ready to be made to the rankings ahead of the NCAA Division I Preliminary Rounds.

As a reminder, the 2018 NCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field Championships will be held June 6-9 in Eugene, Oregon at Historic Hayward Field.
