With the release of the latest Golfweek/Bushnell Coaches Poll, Oklahoma State has now reached a 10-poll streak in the top spot. The Cowboys received all 21 first-place votes after winning twice in stroke play this fall, including a 32-shot win at the Royal Oaks Intercollegiate.

Behind Oklahoma State, Georgia Tech and Duke swapped spots, with Georgia Tech becoming the second-ranked team and Duke the third.

New to the poll this week? The University of North Florida, after closing the season with a runner-up finish in Hawaii. Read more about that team in this week’s notebook.
