Tennis Channel/USTA College Tennis Top 25 Rankings: Mar. 6

The sixth edition of the 2019 Tennis Channel/USTA College Tennis Top 25 Rankings were released on Wednesday, and some prominent schools are starting to find their strides.

The Buckeyes are still the No. 1 team in the men's game, as not much has changed in recent weeks. The most interesting result of the week saw USC beating cross-town rival UCLA, but neither team moved much in the rankings. However, Illinois is down to No. 16 after being No. 13 last week. And Texas A&M is now the No. 20 after being the No. 24. Knocking on the door of the Top 25 is Georgia, which will look to solidify its place shortly.

The top of the women's rankings saw a bit of a change this week, as UCLA dropped from No. 5 to No. 9. That slide came as a result of the Bruins losing to the rival Trojans. USC was unranked heading into last week, but the Trojans are now the No. 24. That's a nice change considering USC was badly going to want that win over UCLA anyway. Also entering the Top 25 this week was Wake Forest. The Demon Deacons have been a fixture at the top of the men's game for a while, but the women have now put themselves on the map.
