Penn State (12-7, 6-2) makes the biggest move from last week's rankings moving up two spots to No.13. The Nittany Lions are coming off hosting the Penn State Spring Break Tournament in Rec Hall. The Nittany Lions downed the UC Santa Barbara Gauchos 3-1 Friday night before falling 3-0 to MPSF member Stanford Saturday night.
