Discuss these rankings on our forums.

This week, Texas brings more shake ups to the rankings, as we look forward to two huge events in Tennessee and Orlando this weekend.

Flower Mound held steady in the second spot after winning the Dallas Regional for the fourth year. Though it doesn't guarantee future success this season, the band has gone on to win San Antonio each and every year they have won in Dallas. Marcus and LD Bell also slid up in the rankings after their impressive performances this weekend. The last big change from North Texas was Wakeland's premiere in the rankings. The band had previously been listed in the Next 10, but this week marks the first time they've been ranked in the Top 32.

Houston similarly brought some exciting changes. Ronald Reagan's decisive victory pushed their ranking up into the top five, while Westwood's shocking second place finish in prelims which quickly slid back to third in finals earned that band a jump from the Next 10 into the Top 32. Westlake and Clear Brook also got nods this week after strong showings in Houston.

Lastly, regional champion Centerville stepped into the Next 10 after winning the Muncie Regional.
