TUCSON, Ariz. — Louisiana St. (52-9) is ranked No. 1 in Collegiate Baseball newspaper’s NCAA Division I baseball poll after winning the Southeastern Conference tournament with a 5-4, 11-inning victory over Vanderbilt.

The Commodores, ranked No. 1 for the previous four polls, slipped to second after the extra inning loss. Vanderbilt, which also lost to Texas A&M in the tournament, won the SEC regular-season title with a 26-3 record while LSU was second at 23-7.

Poll Notes: Several other teams have been hot. Rice has won nine straight while Cal. St. Fullerton has posted seven consecutive wins. North Carolina and Oklahoma have captured five in a row. Virginia Tech. has won eight of its last nine, and Cal. Poly six of its last seven. Three teams fell out of the top 30 this week in Seton Hall (1-2 last week), Campbell (3-1) and Western Carolina (1-2). New to the poll is Virginia Tech., Oklahoma, and San Diego.

The Collegiate Baseball newspaper poll is the oldest college baseball poll. Its birth took place during the 1957 college baseball season.
