Wisconsin & Florida State the top cross country squads in USTFCCCA poll...

NEW ORLEANS--After last weekend's conference championships, the latest USTFCCCA Division I national polls showed some adjustments as teams begin to position themselves for the NCAA championships in Terre Haute, Indiana.

On the men's side, Wisconsin takes over as the new No. 1 team in the land. The Badgers won the Big Ten Championship on Sunday, and for the 13th-consecutive time, with a commanding performance, in scoring just 17 points. Wisconsin claimed seven of 12 first-place votes in the poll and are on top of the national poll for the first time since September 25, 2007.

Washington State, after being ranked #22 in the country, dropped out of the top 30 after their sixth place finish in the Pac-12 championships.

On the women's side, No. 1 Florida State dominated the ACC Championships in scoring just 20 points for their fourth-straight league crown. No. 2 Villanova, the two-time defending NCAA Champs, jumped up two spots after claiming the Big East title, 54-63 over No. 5 Providence.

Washington, which was ranked #2 going into last weekend, dropped to #6, while Pac-12 champ Colorado leapfrogged to #3 from #16.

The complete rankings are available here.
