#NCAAMGym Week 4 Power Rankings OU, Stanford back in a familiar place

Every week we release a "Power Rankings" which aim to provide a fluid picture of how each team across the NCAA is doing at the moment. The + or - next to a team's name represents how much they moved up (+) or down (-) since the previous week's PR.

1. Oklahoma Sooners (+1)

Didn't things just feel off there for a couple of weeks without Oklahoma at No. 1? The Sooners are yet again the no-doubt top team in the country after a convincing victory over two of the best teams in the country. Following the loss of Matt Wenske, we'll get to see how whether or not some of the younger members of this team can step up.

Next Meet: Home vs. Iowa on February 10th

2. Stanford Cardinal (+2)

At the moment, Stanford joins Oklahoma as the only other team to post consecutive 410+ weeks. This is a well-balanced group with a couple of all-arounders with the ability to go 83+.

Next Meet: Home vs. Washington, California and Arizona State on February 10th

3. Illinois Fighting Illini (-)

It wasn't a good week for Illinois, but resting Bobby Baker probably left about five or so points on the table. It should be interesting to see how they fare this week on the road against a Minnesota team that could just be hitting their stride.

Next Meet: @Minnesota on February 10th

4. Minnesota Golden Gophers (+3)

This 3-7 range is where things are really still up in the air. I think Minnesota ability-wise is somewhere in between their scores from week three and four. Still, going 413.25 without Joel Gagnon can't be ignored. The Gophers look to be on a nice trajectory as we head into midseason.

Next Meet: Home vs. Illinois on February 10th

5. NEbraska Cornhuskers (-4)

Nobody said it was easy going into Oklahoma. While Nebraska was still mighty good on FX & VT, events like SR & HB remain too much of a concern. The Huskers are good, but there's still obviously a long way to go.

Next Meet: Home vs. UIC on February 10th

6. Ohio State Buckeyes (-1)

Ohio State isn't quite as good as we thought they'd be so far, but as I mentioned in my recap, I wouldn't count them out. The Seth Delbridge injury has hurt, though he should return at some point. It's just hard to think that a team with Sean Melton and Alec Yoder won't be in contention for some titles come postseason.

Next Meet: Home vs. Penn State on February 9th

7. Penn State Nittany Lions (-1)

Penn State didn't compete in week four but dropped one spot in the rankings.

Next Meet: @Ohio State on February 9th

8. Michigan Wolverines (-)

No love for beating rival Ohio State? It was a heck of a meet for Michigan, and this team's certainly scarier than many would've thought. Jake Moore looks poised to do some damage as a freshman. Another good week from the Wolverines and they'll certainly be moving up. Unfortunately for them, they'll have to wait a couple weeks for their next chance.

Next Meet: @Illinois on February 24th

9. Navy Midshipmen (-)

Navy is officially a 400-club team. Kip Simons is doing something right with his young squad as underclassmen competed thirty routines in the win against Army this weekend. They're running away with the ECAC.

Next Meet: @All-Academy Championships vs. Army & Air Force on February 10th

10. Iowa Hawkeyes (-)

Rounding out a ridiculously competitive B1G conference are the Iowa Hawkeyes. They, along with Navy, joined the 400-club this weekend with a season-best 401.85. Similar to last year, floor (15th - NCAA) is the big event holding Iowa back.

Next Meet: @Oklahoma on February 10th

11. Air Force Falcons (+1)

Three straight weeks of improvement have the Falcons inching closer to a top-ten ranking. Outside of VT & PB they did a good job of staying with Minnesota and are getting good production from a long of young gymnasts.

Next Meet: @All-Academy Championships vs. Army & Navy on February 10th

12. California Golden Bears (-1)

Cal did not compete in week four and moved down one spot in the rankings.

Next Meet: @Pac-12 Invitational vs. Stanford, Washington and Arizona State on February 10th

13. Arizona State Sun Devils (-)

Arizona State didn't compete in week four and didn't move in the rankings.

Next Meet: @Pac-12 Invitational vs. Stanford, California and Washington on February 10th

14. William & Mary Tribe (+1)

A big time jump in team score (up to 398.2) helps the Tribe leapfrog Army in this week's rankings. W&M was solid across the board, posting five event totals of 66+.

Next Meet: @Army vs. Army & Springfield on February 24th

15. Army Black Knights (-1)

Depite the loss to Navy, Army put up their second-straight week of 390+. The biggest problem last weekend was a step back on pommel horse (61.1) where the team ranks 12th in the NCAA.

Next Meet: @All-Academy Championships vs. Navy & Air Force on February 10th

16. Springfield Pride (-)

A new season high for Springfield (391.05) wasn't enough to take down William & Mary on Super Bowl Sunday. Their three all-arounders are still clicking which will be a big help come postseason.

Next Meet: @Army vs. Army and William & Mary on February 24th

17. Washington huskies (-)

Washington didn't compete in week four and didn't move in the rankings.

Next Meet: @Pac-12 Invitational vs. Stanford, California and Arizona State on February 10th

18. UIC Flames (-)

UIC didn't compete in week four and didn't move in the rankings.

Next Meet: @Nebraska on February 10th

19. SC United (-)

SC United didn't compete in week four and didn't move in the rankings.

Next Meet: @NorCal United vs. NorCal United and Arizona State on February 10th

20. Temple Owls (-)

Temple didn't compete in week four and didn't move in the rankings.

Next Meet: @Springfield vs. Springfield and UIC on February 18th
