Florida jumped Oklahoma to retake the top spot this week while the Sooners settled in at No. 2. Michigan retained its third-place ranking for the sixth consecutive week while LSU moved up to No. 4 after posting its highest home meet score of the season against No. 8 Georgia.

Junior Kim Jacob is ranked 13th nationally after winning the all-around against UCLA. Jacob is also fifth on the floor exercise and 11th on the balance beam, after posting scores of 9.95 and 9.9, respectively last Friday.
Senior Ashley Priess moved up to claim the No. 17 spot on balance beam, following a season-high 9.925 against UCLA. Junior Diandra Milliner is 11th and senior Marissa Gutierrez is 17th on the vault.
