Despite it being early in the season, Arizona State did a leapfrog in the Bushnell/Golfweek Coaches Poll after winning the Maui Jim Invitational and Trinity Forest Invitational this month. The Sun Devils topped Texas, which started the year with the top spot, according to coaches’ votes. The Longhorns fell dramatically, all the way to 10th.

The Sun Devils received 14 first-place votes, while second-ranked Georgia Tech earned nine, third-ranked Baylor tallied a single first place vote, and fourth-ranked Wake Forest earned two votes of their own. Georgia Tech and Baylor have also won both their fall starts considering that they shared the title at the OFCC/Fighting Illini Invitational.

Pepperdine jumped to fifth, while Texas Tech moved up 12 spots to No. 6, followed by Duke, Washington, Oklahoma, and Texas to round out the top 10.
