Oklahoma State collected two first-place to enter the poll at No. 6 while New Mexico and Kentucky claimed one first-place ballot apiece to rank seventh and eighth, respectively. UCLA received two first-place votes to place ninth. Texas completes the top 10.

Auburn enters the poll at No. 11 and is followed by Arizona – who claimed the final first-place vote, UNLV, TCU and Tennessee. Oklahoma ranks 16th while Southern California, Brigham Young, California and Wake Forest round out the top 20.
