Tennis Channel/USTA College Tennis Top 25 Rankings: Feb. 20

The fourth edition of the 2019 Tennis Channel/USTA College Tennis Top 25 Rankings were released on Wednesday, and there has been quite a bit of shuffling in both the men and women’s ranks.

Ohio State showed why it was deserving of the top spot this week, as the Buckeyes won the ITA National Men's Team Indoor Championship in Chicago. The other three semifinalists at the event were Wake Forest, Texas and North Carolina, who all find themselves right behind Ohio State in the rankings. Two of the week's bigger jumps belonged to TCU and Columbia. The Horned Frogs moved from No. 15 to No.7, and the Lions are up to No. 9 from No. 14. Meanwhile, Mississippi State is falling fast. The Bulldogs were No. 2 a week ago, but they now find themselves at No. 12.

It was a rather uneventful week in the women's game, where nearly all of the Top 15 programs kept their spots in the rankings. Georgia is still the No. 1, and the only significant changes really came from California's upset victory over Pepperdine. Cal was unranked heading into the week, but Pepperdine was No. 7. The Golden Bears now find themselves at No. 19, and the Waves have moved down to No. 13.
