The top four teams in the South Central Region – Arkansas, Texas, Lamar and Texas A&M – maintained their rankings with North Texas rounding out the top-5. Stephen F. Austin, UTA, Rice, McNeese State and Baylor were ranked in the top 10 with Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, Houston, Central Arkansas, Louisiana and LSU finishing out the poll.
