This week's rankings, by total season average, has several new names as new teams got into action and we saw some big swings in scores earned. There were a number of teams that had problems on various events this week, while others that had troubles last week managed to improve their hit ratios. All rankings are from Troester GymInfo. Because the rankings were compiled on late Sunday night, it appears Ohio State did not enter their scores in time. Otherwise, they would drop to 25th in the rankings. Florida holds onto the top spot, with Stanford, who did not compete, in 2nd. Bama takes over the top spot on VT, while Florida is #1 on UB. Florida also holds the top spot on FX, while Stanford remains on top on BB.
