ASU, which has won both meets it has entered this season, has been ranked first in all but one poll since Oct. 8, 2008. The Grizzlies were idle last week resting for Saturday morning's event in Stanford, Calif., the largest meet on ASU's regular season schedule.
There was very little change in the USTFCCCA's men's rankings as only three of the 35 teams changed positions after a light weekend of action. Lock Haven moved into the top-10, up two spots, while Missouri Southern also moved up one spot to 11th. Western Washington, the former No. 10, slid two spots to 12th.
The rest of the top 10 was unchanged as Western State, Chico State (Calif.), Colorado Mines and Augustana (S.D.) holding down the rest of the top 5 behind the Grizzlies. Grand Valley State, Southern Indiana, Alaska-Anchorage and Massachusetts-Lowell make up the rest of the top-10.
The Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference, which has three of the top four teams, continues to have five ranked teams overall as UC-Colorado Springs and New Mexico Highlands remained in the 14th and 27th spots, respectively. Notably, Eastern New Mexico, also out of the South Central region, remains ranked in the No. 19 spot.
