2022 NCAA DI Men’s Outdoor Track & Field Rating Index – Week 5

NEW ORLEANS – If you listen close enough, you can hear the postseason rapidly approaching.

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 campaign.

There is a new-look top-5 headlined by who else, but Texas. The top-ranked Longhorns didn’t budge since Week 4, but Alabama jumped three spots to No. 4, which pushed both Florida and Texas A&M down one spot to No. 3 and No. 4, respectively, while Oregon flew eight spots from No. 13 to No. 5 to complete the main players at this stage of the season.

Alabama vaulted to a program-best ranking behind five national top-10 efforts this past weekend that brought its season total to ten. Two of those performances came in the hammer throw, where Kieran McKeag and Bobby Colantonio are now the third- and ninth-ranked athletes in the nation at 71.53m (234-8) and 70.39m (230-11), respectively. Isaac Odugbesan is now ranked third in the shot put at 20.66m (67-9½) and the Crimson Tide 4×100 relay cracked the national top-5 with its 38.86 clocking.

Oregon starred at its own Oregon Relays this past weekend, adding three national top-10 marks to its ledger. Reed Brown is now ranked third in the 1500 meters at 3:36.44, as is the Ducks’ 4×100 relay at 38.83. Ty Hampton threw the javelin 77.08m (252-11) to find residence among the top-5 seasonal performers. Oregon still has a pair of national-leading marks from Micah Williams in the 100 with a wind-aided 9.83 (+2.5) and Emmanuel Ihemeje in the triple jump a wind-aided 17.00m (55-9¼).

Here are the rest of the top-10 teams in Week 5: No. 6 Georgia, No. 7 Texas Tech (down three spots), No. 8 BYU, No. 9 Kentucky (up one spot) and No. 10 LSU (down three spots). The biggest mark from these teams came from the Bulldogs in the guise of Matthew Boling, who stopped the clock in the 200 meters at 19.92 to move up to No. 10 in collegiate history.

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