2018 NCAA DI Men’s Outdoor Track & Field National Rankings – Week 7

NEW ORLEANS – Conference Championship Weekend altered the NCAA Division I Descending Order List and in turn, shifted the balance of power in the Men’s National Team Rankings with a little more than three weeks to go until NCAAs.

Only one top-10 team remained in place between Week 6 and Week 7, which is the final week that all regular season marks will be used for calculations. Next week’s rankings will only use those marks that have been declared for NCAA East and West Preliminary Rounds.

Top-ranked Florida was the only team in the top-10 that didn’t move after the dust settled. The Gators captured their first SEC outdoor title since 2015 as Grant Holloway shined. Holloway ran the fastest collegiate time in the 110 hurdles since 1979 (13.15) and moved up to No. 2 on the all-conditions collegiate list this season in the long jump with his mark of 8.32m (27-3¾).

Texas A&M soared three spots in the rankings from No. 5 to No. 2 following a strong weekend. The Aggies received three national top-3 marks in Knoxville, Tennessee, as Tahar Triki took over the national lead in the triple jump at 16.91m (55-5¼), Will Williams is No. 3 in the long jump at 8.25mw (27-1) and John Kyriazis made his season debut in the javelin and speared his way into the No. 3 spot nationally at 80.33m (263-6).

Full Reports: By Team | By Event

Georgia jumped two spots to No. 4, right behind Texas Tech at No. 3. The Bulldogs showed quite a bit of bite this past weekend as Kendal Williams clocked the nation’s fastest time in the 100 at 9.99 (wind-legal) and Denzel Comententia is now ranked No. 2 nationally in the shot put at 20.88m (68-6).

Oregon is back in the top-10 after a short spell out of it. The Ducks flew five spots from No. 11 to No. 6, right behind fifth-ranked Alabama. Damarcus Simpson took full advantage of a strong wind at the Pac-12 Championships, flew 8.33m (27-4) in the long jump and captured that national lead from the aforementioned Holloway.

No. 7 Houston, No. 8 BYU, No. 9 Arkansas and No. 10 Southern California round out the new-look top-10.

Outside of the top-10, Wichita State, Ohio State, Tennessee, Auburn and Indiana were the biggest movers. The Shockers jumped from No. 41 to a program-record No. 21 following two big throws in the javelin from Aaron True and Taran Taylor. The Buckeyes went from No. 36 o No. 22. The Tigers went from No. 37 to No. 24. The Hoosiers went from No. 64 to No. 25, which is their best ranking since 2013.

The 2018 NCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field Championships will take place June 6-9 in Eugene, Oregon at Historic Hayward Field.
