College: North Carolina Stays Atop the NCBWA Division I Poll

North Carolina held onto the top spot in the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association Top 30 Poll.

The Tar Heels improved to 10-0 on the year after winning the Astros Foundation College Classic in Houston. In doing so, Carolina defeated Rice (#22), Texas A&M, and California. The Heels have a great team ERA so far of just 2.05 while their offense is scoring 9.7 runs a game.

There are several hot teams right now with extended winning streaks. Mississippi State (#6) has won 15 in a row, while Oregon State (#4) and Virginia (#19) have both won 12 in a row.

A few teams didn’t fare as well this week including Texas, who went 0-4 and dropped out of the poll, and preseason #1 Arkansas who dropped 4 games this week falling to #16.
