Oklahoma men rise to No. 1 in college rankings

   In news about as surprising as the New York Knicks losing, the Oklahoma men climbed to No. 1 in the latest college rankings released today.
   The Sooners (10-0) defeated the Trojans (9-1) on Monday in frigid Chicago to win their first title in the ITA National Indoor Championship. It was a rematch of last year's NCAA final, won by USC.
   Oklahoma and USC flip-flopped at the top two spots in the rankings. John Roddick, Andy's older brother, is in his sixth season as the Sooners' coach.
   Cal (7-2) dropped one notch to No. 14 after losing in the opening round of 16 in the National Indoors to host and No. 5 Illinois, then falling to No. 15 Columbia and beating No. 22 Penn State in the consolations.
   The top 10 women's teams, including No. 5 Cal and No. 10 Stanford, remained the same.
