The Baylor men's 4x400-meter relay squad is ranked No. 1 according to Trackwire's Dandy Dozen after defeating previously top-ranked LSU and fourth-ranked Arizona State this past weekend in Boise, Idaho. Overall, the men moved up one spot and are tied for 9th, while the women jumped up two spots into a tie for 14th in the Trackwire 25 released Tuesday.
