The Oklahoma Sooners have risen to the top spot in the Bushnell Golfweek Coaches Poll, as the fall college season draws to a close.

The 2017 NCAA Champions are back on top after seeing their in-state rivals Oklahoma State dominate the poll over much of the last two seasons. This fall, the Sooners have won two tournaments (the Nike Collegiate Invitational and the Kaanapali Collegiate) as well as a runner-up and third-place finish.
