The LSU track and field teams picked up three relay wins and an individual victory at the 95th Texas Relays over the weekend, but it didn’t stop the Tigers from slipping in the national computer rankings.

When the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association’s rankings were updated Monday, LSU was caught in the shuffle as a result of performances from meets around the country.

The women’s team was supplanted as the top team in the second outdoor rankings, dropping five spots to sixth, while the men fell three spots to fifth.

The Tigers hold top-three marks in four events with the men’s 4×100-meter relay recording the fastest time in the nation at 38.53 seconds in winning the Texas Relays title.
