The University of Iowa remains at the No. 1 spot in the NWCA/USA Today Coaches Poll for the sixth week in a row as they received seven No. 1 votes.

There was little movement in the Top 25 this week, due to a lack of dual meets.

There will be no poll the week of December 27, 2011, voting will resume on January 3, 2012.

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.
