Following two blowout home losses to UCLA, the Arizona Wildcats fell out of the ESPN.com/USA Softball Collegiate Top 25 today for the first time in program history.

The Wildcats (28-19, 5-10) had been tied for No. 25 in the poll before losing two of three to the Bruins last week.

In today's poll, the UA fell from the top 25, but also down even farther. Six teams outside the top 25 received more votes than the Wildcats' three — the equivalent of three of 20 individual votes for No. 25.

Oklahoma remained No. 1 in the poll, with Tennessee placing second. Oregon was ranked fourth, Arizona State fifth.

The UA travels to Oregon State for a three-game series that starts Friday.
