OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – The 16-0 UCLA Bruins continued this week at No. 1 among the ESPN.com/USA Softball Collegiate Top 25 poll followed closely by the 21-0 red hot Arizona Wildcats at No. 2. A shakeup took place among the Top 10, as LSU and Florida State moved their way up with wins over top 25 ranked teams while Louisiana Lafayette and Arizona State fell to No. 11 and No. 24 respectively.
A tremendous weekend defeating three Top 10 teams, the LSU Tigers saw this week’s biggest jump moving from No. 13 to No. 5 thanks to the outstanding efforts of starting pitcher and USA Softball ‘Player of the Week’ Kristin Schmidt.
