This is the link to the updated USA today/NFCA poll. However, UCLA's record isn't correct. https://www.ncaa.com/rankings/softball/d1

UCLA -- with its ace pitcher nowhere to be seen -- loses at home to Stanford and stays top 4?

Where is my sober poll?

That's a bunch of losses for a bunch of Top 10 teams. But at least they're all still Top 10 teams.

Frankly, though, I appreciate the polls. Get an average from 4-5 national polls and you'll have a pretty accurate ranking of the Top 10 teams. Gets a little more dicey when you try to pick Nos. 11-25.

It is the better poll again, but dropping Oregon State, when they beat the No. 6 team and then lost to them in 15 innings is stupid

I agree, OSU is going to make some waves in someone's regional.

Please send them to Tennessee.

Oregon State was ranked at #32 in the NFCA poll.
