Clemson checks into the poll at third and is followed by Arizona State and Georgia Tech. 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.
