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

Louisiana is up two spots, to number 8, in the latest USA Today/NFCA Division I Coaches Poll, which was released on Tuesday.

Louisiana won three of five games last week against two teams ranked in the top ten, splitting a road doubleheader with Texas last Tuesday in Austin, Texas, before winning 2-of-3 against Florida last weekend in Gainesville, Florida, as they moved to 14-5 to begin the 2020 season.

The Cajuns return to action this Wednesday (weather permitting) when they play host to Campbell in a non-conference affair, before making a trip to Conway, South Carolina this weekend to face the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers in a three-game, weekend, Sun Belt Conference series.

UCLA is once again the top-ranked team in this week's poll, with Washington, Texas, Arizona, and LSU rounding out the top five.

Oklahoma, Florida, Louisiana, Alabama, and Kentucky are ranked 6-10, respectively.

At 11-15, it's Oregon, Florida St. Georgia, Oklahoma St., and South Carolina, followed by Michigan, Arizona St., Minnesota, Virginia Tech, and Arkansas at 16-20.

Finally, at 21-25, Baylor, UCF, Missouri, Mississippi St., and Fresno St.
