In the final week of conference play, Minnesota had a stellar playing week, defeating both the No. 1 Nebraska and No. 3 Wisconsin in five. With them winning each of these matches, they secured enough votes (36) from the committee to become the No. 1 ranked team entering the NCAA tournament.
Nebraska falls to No. 2 receiving 27 committee votes, while Wisconsin remains at No. 3 receiving one first place nomination.
Dropping out of the top 10 is Florida from No. 9 to No. 11, despite two wins and securing a share of the SEC title. Also securing their share of the SEC title was Missouri, who jumped to No. 18 from No. 22.
No teams dropped out of the top-25.
Others receiving votes: Ohio State 53; Iowa State 32; Boise State 20; Arizona 16; Texas A&M 13; SMU 11; Southern California 8; Kansas State 6; Wichita State 6; Purdue 3
