NORMAN, OK (March 31, 2017) -- USC received 13 first-place votes to become the new No. 1 team in the Bushnell Golfweek Coaches Poll. The Trojans are the fourth team to hold the top ranking this season.

Since the beginning of the spring season it is hard to find a team that has been playing as good as the Trojans. They have won once (Southern Highlands Collegiate) and finished second twice (Amer Ari Invitational and Southwestern Invitational)

Baylor bolted up five spots to second and received two first-place tallies. Previous No. 1 Vanderbilt dropped to third and appeared on the remaining first-place ballot. Oklahoma State dropped to fourth. Florida and Oregon tied at No. 5. LSU moved up a spot to No. 7. Wake Forest jumped up eight places to No. 8 and was joined by No. 10 Kent State, who climbed five rungs, as newcomers to the top 10. Illinois fell to No. 9.

Mississippi (No. 23) and Arizona State (No. 24) reentered the ranking. Arkansas and San Diego State fell from the top 25.
