Composite of six major national DI rankings, March 6

Each week during the regular season, posts a composite poll of five national NCAA Division I rankings. In the table below, I've added to the mix for a six-ranking composite.

TCU is No. 1 in all six rankings.

South Carolina is ninth (down from eighth) and Clemson is 11th (up from a tie for 17th) in the rankings after the Tigers won two of three over the Gamecocks over the weekend. Coastal Carolina climbed from a tie for 24th to 21st in the composite rankings.

There are six ACC teams and five SEC teams in the composite Top 25 ranking. The +/- represents rise or fall from last week's composite rankings.

   Points are awarded on a descending scale, from 25 points for a first-place vote to 1 for a 25th-place vote. Some polls ranked more than 25 teams, but I kept it at the top 25 for consistency's sake. In the event of ties, the points are divided evenly among the tied teams. This week that's why Vanderbilt and Louisiana have half points.
