Clemson No. 20 in Collegiate Baseball Poll

By

TUCSON, Ariz. — The University of Florida (12-1) is ranked No.1 for the fourth straight Collegiate Baseball NCAA Division I baseball poll presented by Big League Chew bubble gum.

The Gators, which have won six in a row, beat Central Florida twice and swept a 3-game series from Dartmouth last week. Florida’s pitching staff has a 2.50 ERA and has struck out 138 batters while only walking 31 in 13 games.

POLL NOTES: Several teams have impressive winning streaks. Georgia Tech has won 11 straight, the longest winning streak at the school since stringing together 16 straight victories in 2011. Oregon St. has won nine in a row while North Carolina has captured eight straight.

In key series over the past weekend, Vanderbilt won two of three at Stanford, Oregon beat U.C. Santa Barbara two of three at home, Clemson beat South Carolina two of three at home, Dallas Baptist swept a 3-game series at New Mexico and California won four straight at Texas, an accomplishment that has never been done against Texas in 79 attempts.

Three teams fell out of the top 30 in New Mexico (0-3), Stanford (2-2) and Cal. St. Fullerton (2-2). New to the poll this week is N.C. State (10-2, 7 straight wins), Clemson (8-2) and Dallas Baptist (8-3, 4 wins in a row).

The Collegiate Baseball newspaper poll is the oldest college baseball poll. Its birth took place during the 1959 college baseball season.
