Tennis Channel/USTA College Tennis Top 25: Final 2021 Rankings

Pat Mitsch | May 24, 2021

ORLANDO, Fla. – National champions Florida and Texas top the final Tennis Channel/USTA College Tennis Top 25 poll of the 2021 season, as the SEC and ACC are the top conferences in the men's and women's rankings, respectively.

 

The SEC far outpaced other conferences in the men's poll, with eight teams ranked. The Pac-12 was second, with five, and the Big Ten third, with four. The ACC's seven teams lead all conferences in the women's poll, followed by the SEC's six and the Pac-12's four. 

 

Each team's point total, specified below, is the sum of its ranking points from the USTA's panel of voters (listed below). Each voter ranked 25 teams from Nos. 1 to 25, with the first-place team receiving 25 points and the last-place team receiving one. For control, the highest and lowest outlying ranking for each team on the ballot was removed. First-place votes were not tallied. This week's poll includes 13 voters, making the maximum number of points available 275.

The voting panel includes: Casey Angle, former ITA Director of Championships; Virgil Christian, former USTA Director of College Tennis; Richard Croome, former sports journalist; Sonny Dearth, sports journalist for the Daily Press (Va.) and Virginian-Pilot; Judy Dixon, former UMass head coach; Alex Gruskin, Cracked Racquets; J. Webb Horton, former FGCU head coach; Granger Huntress, Texas College Tennis; Bobby Knight, College Tennis Today; Brandon Moglen, Tennis Channel; Michael Patrick, former Tennessee head coach; Lisa Stone, Parenting Aces; Caitlin Thompson, Racquet Magazine; Scott Treibly, USTA; Shannon Wrege/Dallas Oliver, Tennis Recruiting Network.
