What's going on Nation?! We're back with our Week 8 Aggregation. As usual, we compile all the major polls (Links for Week 8 polls: Inside Lacrosse, Lacrosse Magazine, and USILA Coaches Poll), plus Jason and my top 20 media ballot into one table, and present it below. You can find the College Crosse Top 20 for Week 8 here. You can also find the updated NCAA RPI rankings here.

Let’s go to the Big Board.

PSU vs. Syracuse vs Other: The number 1 spot has been a tough place to be this year. We haven’t seen a team make it more than one week as the sole #1 team in the IL Media Poll in over a month. It’s your turn in the bright lights, Penn State!! I thought Syracuse deserved the #1 spot this round, but I can’t fault anyone for putting going with PSU. The Nittany Lions were very impressive last night vs. Ohio State.

Who is your number 1 team?

Binghamton: The BU Terriers dropped out of the IL Media Poll but another BU stepped up to replace them. Stand up, Binghamton! This has been a great year for the Bearcats. Binghamton already has more wins in a season than they’ve had since their 10-6 run in 2004, additionally, the Bearcats have as many wins in 2017 as they did in 2016 & 2015, combined.

BOSS McKeown has been a great hire and he’s a big reason why this team is 8-1 overall and 3-0 in the America East. The Bearcats are a real threat to go deep in the 2017 America East Tournament. (Ed. Note: Thanks to reader Jeff Barlow for the correction. We misstated that Binghamton was in the MAAC and not the America East)

Villanova: Welcome back, Wildcats! After a disappointing 1-4 start to 2017, Villanova has won their last 5 straight games. The Wildcats very hot right now and the #2 seed (or better) in the Big East Tournament is very possible if they continue playing the way they have been lately.
