Mower Deck Drive Belt Flies Off

John Deere Z Trak 727. Has been fine. While cutting grass today, the drive belt came off. No cracks in the belt, all the rotating parts are secure with no looseness. I tightened the mower deck drive belt tension to 8 1/4 " per spec. Restarted fine. As soon as I hit grass, it flew off again.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Look for a pulley that isn't in line with the others, or is tilted.
