The University of Iowa remains at the No. 1 spot in the NWCA/USA Today Coaches Poll as they received eight No. 1 votes.

The Top 20 remains the same with little noticeable movement this week.

No. 2 Oklahoma State proved their team’s strength over the weekend with a 24-13 win over No. 3 Minnesota.

Edinboro moves to No. 25 this week after receiving votes in the past weeks.

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.
