Georgia Leaps Past Auburn, Takes No.1 Ranking in Latest NCEA Coaches Poll

RELEASE: March 20, 2013
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: Andrew Minnick

Despite not competing over the past two weeks (since the last coaches poll was released), and securing the No.1 seed in the SEC Championship next week, the Auburn Tigers lost the No.1 ranking to the Georgia Bulldogs. Georgia was impressive in a win over Texas A&M on March 8, and apparently that was enough for voters. The Bulldogs aren’t No.1 by much, they were voted there by a trim one point margin, but they could have a chance to defend their ranking against Auburn in the finals of the SEC Championship (if both teams win their opening rounds matches).

The biggest move came from resurgent Kansas State. The Wildcats have rebounded recently with decisive wins over South Carolina and Oklahoma State and moved up from No.8 to No.4. Texas Christian has moved up two spots to No.5.

South Carolina dropped to No.6, Baylor to No.7, and Texas A&M to No.8.

South Dakota State moved up one spot to No. 9 and Fresno State, despite not competing in two weeks, dropped out of the rankings. Southern Methodist University returns to the rankings in the No.10 spot.
