Florida State jumped Oklahoma and Wake Forest to grab the top spot in the latest Bushnell Golfweek Division I Coaches Poll.

The Seminoles are fresh off a team title at the Valspar Collegiate at The Floridian National Golf Club in Palm City, Florida. It’s Florida State’s third team win of the season.

Oklahoma drops just one spot after receiving seven first-place votes. Wake Forest, which received one first-place vote, is third, while Illinois, which received the final first-place vote, is fourth. Arizona State is fifth.

Texas, Oklahoma State, Vanderbilt, Auburn and Texas A&M round out the top ten.
