Oracle and the Intercollegiate Tennis Association announced the updated Oracle/ITA Collegiate Tennis Division I National Team Rankings on Tuesday, and there's a new No. 1-ranked team on the men's side.

The Ohio State University, buoyed by a 4-1 win at then-No. 10 Florida on Feb. 26, moved ahead of the team they narrowly fell to in the final of the 2017 ITA Division I National Men's Team Indoor Championship, the University of Virginia.

The University of Florida continues to hold down the top spot in the national women's team rankings.

The men's Top 10 saw USC re-enter the mix after picking up narrow 4-3 wins over then-No. 33 Cal Poly (now No. 39) and then-No. 35 Stanford (now No. 44) last week. On the women's side, Georgia Tech moved up six places from No. 11 to No. 5; Cal jumped 11 spots from No. 18 to No. 7; Pepperdine advanced from No. 12 to No. 9 and Duke rose from No. 17 to No. 10.

A reminder that the national team rankings feature the Top 50 teams. Coaches will have access to the unpublished national team rankings on the ITA website.
