OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. - A 10-game winning streak including sweeps of Arkansas and Liberty have allowed Tennessee (35-2) to remain in the No. 1 spot according to the latest ESPN.com/USA Softball poll released on Tuesday. By remaining in the nation's top position for the seventh consecutive week, the Big Orange have now held on to No. 1 for the longest period by a single program since the 2005 Michigan squad. The Wolverines finished out that campaign on a 10-week run at No. 1 after winning its only national title. UT is currently off to the best start in program history overall (35-2) as well as in Southeastern Conference play at 11-2.

Texas A&M (28-3) is NCAA Division I's new No. 2 team after last week's second-ranked squad, Alabama (31-3), dropped two contests of a three-game series at LSU to fall to fourth. Oklahoma (36-3) went 3-1 for the week with a 10-inning, 5-4 loss to No. 10 Texas to remain in third, while Alabama (31-3) and defending national champion Arizona (24-7) round out the top 5.

LSU (31-5) won two of the three contests during the vital SEC Western Division series against the Crimson Tide to rise three positions to sixth, while Florida (27-14) rounds out the remaining SEC schools in this week's ESPN.com/USA Softball Top 25.
