South Florida picked up 11 first-place mentions and vaults from
fifth to second, with Boston College and Oklahoma at three and four
after getting one first-place vote each.
South Carolina checks in at number seven, followed by Oregon and
Kentucky, which jumps from 17th to eighth on the strength of its
upset of LSU.
West Virginia sits ninth ahead of Cal.
Virginia Tech is 11th, followed by Arizona State, Southern
California and Florida. Kansas and Missouri are tied for 15th, and
then it's Hawaii, Auburn, Texas and Tennessee.
The last five consists of Georgia, Texas Tech, Cincinnati,
Michigan and Kansas State.
