The University of Iowa remains at the No. 1 spot in the NWCA/USA Today Coaches Poll as the second week of the season comes to a close

There was some movement in the Top 5 this week as teams faced off against one another. Penn State (former No. 2) moves down to No. 5 after losing to No. 4 Minnesota 23-14, while former No. 5 Cornell moves to No. 3 after beating Minnesota 21-16 over the weekend.

Rounding out the Top 5 are: Iowa, Oklahoma State, Cornell, Minnesota and Penn State.

Joining the Top 10 this week for the first time since 1963 is Pittsburgh who recorded wins over No. 10 Lehigh and No. 7 Michigan this week.

Making movement in the Top 20 were No 12. Maryland and No. 17 Oregon State.

Moving back into the poll for this week is Kent State at No. 23.

The NWCA/USA Today Division I Team Coaches Poll Committee is made up of one coach from each conference.  A number one ranking is worth 25 points and a number 25 ranking is worth one point. This poll is based on a dual meet ranking.

A new poll will be released every Tuesday from now until the week of the NCAA Division I Wrestling Tournament and can be found at www.nwcaonline.com.
