College: Virginia Stays Atop NCBWA Division I Poll

College: Virginia Stays Atop NCBWA Division I Poll

The Virginia Cavaliers are still holding strong at the top of the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association Division I poll after going 3-1 this past week. Virginia squared off with then #13 Clemson over the weekend taking two of three in Charlottesville. This is the fourth straight week at the top of the poll and the sixth week total for Virginia.

Former #1 holder Florida State dropped from the second spot to #5 after dropping two of three to Georgia Tech over the weekend in Atlanta.

Perhaps the biggest surprise of the year so far has been a team from Louisiana, and no it is not LSU. It is Louisiana Lafayette who sits ranked #2 this week after going 4-1 this past week. The next biggest surprise is sitting right behind Louisiana in Cal Poly at #3. The Mustangs just went 4-0 this past week including a sweep of Hawaii over the weekend.
