Week 7 sees a few changes in the Cal State Omaha poll. Some highlights:

- Uc Santa Barbara debuts at No. 23 while Illinois dropped out.
- Arizona State only has one loss on the season
- LSU goes on the road and wins a big series
Vandy and UCLA remain No. 1 and 2. South Carolina, Texas A&M and Mississippi State debut in the poll this week. Making room for those three were Cal State Fullerton, Georgia Tech and Duke who all tumbled out of the rankings.
