College softball rankings: Oklahoma remains the unanimous No. 1 team

Watch: These are the softball plays of the week

Led by unanimous No. 1 Oklahoma, the top six teams in the latest USA TODAY/NFCA Coaches poll remained in the same order as last week, with No. 7 Texas being the highest-ranked team to improve its ranking.

The Sooners, who are undefeated with a 25-0 record, received all 32 first-place votes. One-loss Pac-12 teams UCLA and Oregon check in at No. 2 and No. 3, respectively, with three-loss SEC squads Alabama and Florida are ranked No. 4 and No. 5, respectively.

Florida State, which had a 28-6 record at the time the latest poll was released, is the only team to climb into the top 10, with the Seminoles climbing from No. 12 to No. 10. No. 24 Northwestern and No. 25 Baylor are both new to the poll this week.

The 2021 USA Today/NFCA Division I Top 25 Poll is voted on by 32 NCAA Division I head coaches, one representing each conference. Records reflect games played through March 28. Programs not competing in 2021 will not be eligible for ranking consideration.
