It’s the wild, wild west out there.

UCLA (15-0) remains in the top spot of the D1Softball Top 25 Rankings after recording a pair of wins over ranked teams over the past week.

Washington and LSU went a perfect 5-0 for the weekend, and both made moves in the rankings. The Huskies move back to No. 2 and LSU (13-1) climbs to No. 4.

Louisiana jumped Florida State to enter the top eight for the first time since the preseason. The Gators move to No. 9 after an impressive weekend at the Mary Nutter Classic. Florida went 4-1 with wins over Arizona, Arizona State and Northwestern. The rest of the field gets a bit sticky with multiple upsets and five teams with three or more losses this past weekend.

Baylor (13-2) and UCF (13-2) enter the rankings this week, replacing Tennessee and North Carolina. Both went 1-4 last week.

The Southeastern Conference leads with eight teams in the rankings, while the Pac 12 has six representatives, just ahead of the Big 12 with five. Other conferences include the ACC (2), Big Ten (2) Sun Belt (1) American Athletic (1).

The D1Softball Top 25 Rankings are compiled by polling 10 sportswriters, broadcasters, analysts and coaches from across the nation, and are headlined by lead writers Rhiannon Potkey and Tara Henry.
