The Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns are on the rise in one of the major college softball polls.

Louisiana is up one spot, to number 9, in the latest USA Today/NFCA Division I Coaches Poll, which was released on Tuesday.

Louisiana swept a three-game Sun Belt Conference series from Troy last weekend, after downing Nicholls in non-conference action, to improve to 23-3 on the season.

The Cajuns return to action on Wednesday evening, when they play host to the McNeese St. Cowgirls, before hitting the road to take on South Alabama in a league series this weekend.

UCLA is, once again, the top-ranked team in this week's poll, with Oklahoma, Florida St., Alabama, and Tennessee rounding out the top five.

Florida, Washington, LSU, Louisiana, and Texas are ranked 6-10, respectively.

At 11-15, it's Arizona, Georgia, Kentucky, Texas Tech, and Arkansas, followed by South Carolina, Auburn, James Madison, and Minnesota at 16-20.

Finally, at 21-25, Oklahoma St., Indiana, Wisconsin, Ole Miss, and Michigan round out the poll.
