Stanford lost a pair of midweek games against Santa Clara and UC Davis to slip to No. 6.

Two teams made their season debuts in the rankings this week. Louisiana State swept then-No. 18 Kentucky on the road to move into the rankings at No. 22, while Texas Christian, who has won of 23 of their last 29 games to run its record to 33-16 overall, swept Utah to crack the Rankings at No. 25.
