Texas A&M ranked No. 1 after 23 victories at LSU Alumni Gold meet
Texas A&M is back atop the rankings for the first time since week eight of the 2011 season — right before they won their last national championship. The Aggies have been the top-ranked team 22 other times prior to this week since 2008. If Texas A&M appears at the top of the rankings again next week, it would mark the fourth season in which it has held the No. 1 spot for consecutive weeks — with the other three resulting in national championships.

Texas A&M jumped 25.5 net points for a 304.95 team score to leap past Kansas, which slid 38.72 team points to 290.49 but is still very much in the hunt for No. 1.
Arizona made a modest 20.3 net point gain, but jumped three spots to No. 3 as a result, just edging out LSU. The Lady Tigers slipped just 4.13 net points to 257.58.
Arkansas is back in the top ten for the first time since this week a season ago, leaping 37.17 net points and five spots with a team score of 222.31.
