TUCSON, Ariz. — Cal. St. Fullerton (34-8) was named the top team in the nation in Collegiate Baseball newspaper's NCAA Division I baseball poll.

The Titans, which have won six in a row and 10 of their last 11 games, unseated Rice which had been ranked No. 1 the prior four polls. The Owls had won 30 straight games only two weeks ago and were sitting at 33-1 on the season. But since that time, Rice has only posted a 4-5 record. Last week Rice was 2-3 and slipped from No. 1 to fifth with a 37-6 overall record.

Poll Notes: Four teams fell out of the poll this week in Wake Forest (2-3), South Alabama (2-2), Lamar (2-2) and Wichita St. (2-3). New teams in the poll include North Carolina (31-11) which is currently on a 9-game winning streak, Pepperdine (26-15, 7-game winning streak), Texas Christian (26-15, 6-game winning streak) and Nevada-Las Vegas (32-11).

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