Week four of our look at the spectrum of rankings in NCAA Division I men's lacrosse is upon us, and for the second straight week, Maryland sweeps the No. 1 spot in all six of the rankings we use for our system. Loyola, on the strength of a dominating win over Duke, slides up to No. 2 in all but the USILA poll, while Johns Hopkins is comfortably in the No. 3 spot despite LaxPower's system slotting them seventh.

UMass took the biggest hit, dropping from an average of around ninth last week to 14th after a 15-goal drubbing at the hands of Albany.

Each week, we will publish an aggregate of the rankings from Lacrosse Magazine, ESPN broadcasters Eamon McAnaney and Quint Kessenich, the Warrior media poll, the USILA coaches poll and the LaxPower computer rankings.
