There was plenty of shaking up in this week's Men's rankings, but things at the top stayed status quo, with Maryland holding No. 1 in all but the LaxPower zone this week to easily hold its composite standing intact. But Loyola, which holds that LaxPower No. 1, is close behind, averaging just 0.63 behind the Terrapins. Beyond that point, there's not much by way of strong correlation among the various ranks, due to the tricky nature of slotting such a balanced field.

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.
