Gators Remain No. 1 in GCAA/Precept Coaches Poll
Florida tallies 27 first-place votes

NORMAN, Okla. ? The Florida Gators are once again the top-ranked team in Division I men?s college golf in the GCAA/Precept Coaches Poll. Florida - who earned 27 first-place votes - has been ranked No. 1 in every regular-season poll in 2003-04.

ACC Champion Clemson and UCLA - winner of the team title at the U.S. Intercollegiate - earned the remaining two first-place votes to rank second and third, respectively.

TCU dropped one spot out of the top 10 to No. 11 and is followed by South Carolina, UNLV and Brigham Young. Southern California made the biggest move inside the poll, climbing five spots to No. 15. California is once again ranked No. 16 - a spot it has held or shared the past five polls. Augusta State, New Mexico, Duke and Oklahoma round out the top 20.

Wake Forest stayed at No. 21. Arkansas took the biggest slide in the poll, falling four spots to No. 22. Washington fell one spot to No. 22 and Kentucky held steady at No. 25. Kansas entered the poll for the first time this season, debuting at No. 24.
