Here is the newest edition of the NCAA DI Men’s Outdoor Track & Field National Rating Index, as released on Monday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). No marks from previous seasons are being used, so this gives a comprehensive, objective look at the current season at hand, which now has less than five weeks to go!

There were few major changes to the top-25, as many of the teams in powerhouse conferences rested ahead of their upcoming conference championships. Texas, Alabama, Florida and LSU all remained in place from the previous week: the Longhorns are No. 1; the Crimson Tide sit No. 2; the Gators hold down the No. 3 spot; the Tigers aren’t too far behind in fourth.

Georgia leapfrogged Texas A&M and is in the top-5 for the first time this season thanks to the heroics of Kyle Garland this past weekend. Competing at the USATF Combined Event Championships in Fayetteville, Arkansas, Garland annihilated the collegiate record in the decathlon with 8720 points, 181 more than the former standard set by Lindon Victor in 2017. Garland posted PRs in six events and came close in the other four. He ended up finishing second to former UGA standout Garrett Scantling and earned a berth to the World Championships.

Otherwise, the top-10 consisted of the Aggies, No. 7 Oregon, No. 8 Southern California, No. 9 Texas Tech and No. 10 Baylor. If you’re counting at home, that’s five from the SEC, three from the Big 12 and two from the Pac-12.

Princeton made the biggest jump between Week 6 and Week 7, going from No. 22 to No. 16. The Tigers, who recently won the team title at the Ivy League Heptagonal Championships to give Hall of Fame coach Fred Samara yet another Triple Crown, received a national top-10 effort from Robbie Otal in the discus of 62.77m (205-11). That gives Princeton a total of four national top-10 efforts: Ed Trippas in the steeplechase (No. 3, 8:30.25); brothers Sondre and Sindre Guttormsen in the pole vault at No. 2 (5.75m/18-10¼) and No. 4 (5.65m/18-6½), respectively.

Mark your calendars for June 8-11, because that’s when the 2022 NCAA DI Outdoor Track & Field Championships will be held at the reimagined Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon!
