NORMAN, OK (March 10, 2017) -- In this edition of the Division I Bushnell Golfweek Coaches Poll, Vanderbilt kept a firm grasp on the top spot keeping its 13 first-place votes after finishing sixth at the Querencia Cabo Intercollegiate tournament. The Commodores have kept the top spot for three straight rankings.

There is much movement in the rest of the top 25 as no team kept its previous rank. Virgina moved up to No. 2 with three first-place votes. Oklahoma State moved to third, appearing on one first-place ballot. Florida and USC both dropped in the rankings, to Nos. 4 and 5 respectively, despite two first-place tallies each. Illinois checked in at No. 6 and is followed by Baylor, LSU, Stanford and Oregon.

Arkansas, Georgia Tech and Kent State rejoined the ranking. Kennesaw State, Mississippi and North Carolina fell from the top 25.

Some Notes

The biggest leap in the latest Bushnell Golfweek Coaches Poll came from Kent State as they went from unranked to No. 15. Kent State has played just once this fall picking up a win at the Louisiana Classics in February.

Texas A&M made a sizable jump as well moving up ten spots to No. 22. In the last few weeks the Aggies have finished second at the John A. Burns Intercollegiate and the Louisiana Classics.

Two other teams, Baylor and Clemson, moved up seven spots. Baylor cracked the top 10 at No. 7 thanks to a win at the All American and a runner- up showing at the Querencia Cabo Collegiate. Clemson made the jump to No. 14 with wins at the Puerto Rico Classic and Palmetto Intercollegiate.
