As was the case with last week's women's polls, several of the men's programs in the polls are ranked as high as they've been in the last 10 seasons. Along with the Longhorns, No. 4 Arkansas and No. 10 California find themselves at historic high points; neither program had previously been ranked in the top 10.
The same goes for No. 12 North Florida (previous best was 20th), No. 17 Kent State (matching their previous high) and No. 18 UCF.
After taking a look at the poll you'll also notice a few schools that are conspicuous by their absence.
Texas A&M is also not among the top 25 for the first time since March 2008.
And while Oklahoma State was not in jeopardy of being left out of the top 25, the Cowboys No. 11 ranking is significant nonetheless. It's the first time OSU has been out of the top five in the Golf World poll since April 2008 and the first time it's been out of the top 10 since February 2003 (a streak of 74 straight polls).
There's also a new school holding down the No. 1 spot in the Golf World/Nike Golf Division II men's coaches' poll.
Lynn University, with two victories and five top-five finishes in five fall starts, claimed the top spot. The Fighting Knights were one of seven programs to received first-place votes, earning four to outpace their rivals and move from their previous No. 3 ranking.
The top spot in the Golf World/Nike Golf Division III men's coaches' poll also has a new tenant.
Victories at the Golfweek Fall Invitational and the O'Briant-Jensen Memorial gave Guilford the No. 1 ranking. The Quakers earned 15 of 19 available first-place votes to move from No. 4 in the previous poll.
By contrast, the Golf World/Nike Golf NAIA men's coaches' poll had little turnover.
Oklahoma Christian remained the No. 1 team, earning eight of 14 available first-place votes. The defending NAIA champions have a win at the Texoma Championship and top-four finishes in two Division I tournaments.
Similarly the Golf World/Nike Golf NJCAA Division II men's coaches' poll still sees South Mountain in the No. 1 spot, but the Division I poll has a new leader with Meridian moving from No. 3 to No. 1.
