Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajun softball team is ranked 20th in this week’s ESPN.COM/USA Softball Collegiate Top 25 poll.

Louisiana is down five spots from last week’s poll, after going 2-2-1 in the season-opening Louisiana Classics over the weekend.

The Cajuns return to action this weekend, when they play host to the Ragin’ Cajuns Invitational at Lamson Park. UL will play twice on Friday, against Valparaiso (2 pm) and Boston College (4:30 pm), twice more on Saturday, against Memphis (2:30 pm) and Michigan (5 pm), and once on Sunday, against Central Arkansas (2 pm).

Getting back to the poll, the Florida Gators are up two spots, to the top spot this week, after beginning the year with a 6-0 record.

Last week’s top team, the Tennessee Lady Vols, fell one spot, to number two, despite being undefeated, at 4-0, on the season.

The 5-0 Washington Huskies are up two spots, from number five last week, to number three this week.

The Michigan Wolverines, who will bring their 3-1 record to town for the Ragin’ Cajuns Invitational this weekend, are the number four team for the second-consecutive week.

Rounding out the top five is 6-0 Arizona St., who was ranked seventh in last week’s poll.

At spots 6-10, it’s Alabama, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Kentucky, and Oregon.

Texas A&M, Florida St., UCLA, Baylor, and Stanford are in spots 11-15, while Texas, Georgia, Missouri, South Alabama, and Louisiana hold down spots 16-20 in the poll.

Finally, at 21-25, it’s LSU, Arizona, Louisville, Minnesota, and California.

UAB and South Florida dropped out of the poll from a week ago.
