It's highly likely that the middle of this pack is a crapshoot. Arizona State plays Arizona this coming weekend - is one demonstrably better than the other? Not really. However, Colorado juuuust lost to AU earlier this season, so they have to be ranked right behind. Cal Poly, CWU and Texas A&M have all recorded useful results that could put them somewhere between 10 and 20.

The big move upward in this week's Top 20 is Kutztown, after they beat Navy. The is no significant move up. We do suspect that the Pacific teams, hampered as they are by a small schedule, may well deserve to be higher.

Central Washington v. UCLA could be one of those games that ensures one team a spot a little higher. This coming weekend is also a weekend of rivalries - BYU v. Utah (oh yes!), Arizona v. Arizona State, Army v. Navy ... you get the idea. The one that tells us the most may well be Kutztown v. Delaware (not exactly a long-standing rivalry in most sports), because Delaware is not a poor team - they've been a bit unlucky. If KU can hold their position and produce a result in that match, they will establish themselves as a solid contender.
