College Crosse Top 20 Week 4

We have our fourth #1 of the season as we wrap up the first month of the season

Jake Nazar

After another incredibly exciting week of games in what so far has been an incredibly exciting season, we had yet further a lot of shake-up to the College Crosse Top 20, including our fourth team to reach the #1 ranking in just one month of the season. As usual, Chris, Ryan, Adam, Skyler, Safe, and myself took part in the voting. Directly below you can find each of our individual ballots and below that is the official College Crosse Top 20 poll for Week 4. Let us know any thoughts you have or what your Top 20 would be in the comments or on Twitter.

Towson ascends to the #1 ranking after their big win over previous #1 Loyola, which coupled with #2 Maryland’s loss last week sees the Tigers jump all the way up from #6 to the top spot. The aforementioned Terps don’t drop far after an OT loss on the road at Notre Dame, only falling one spot to #3. Undefeated Cornell moves up to #2, meaning no matter what happens on Friday in their games against Jacksonville and Penn State, the Tigers and Big Red will be a #1 vs. #2 match-up in our poll on Sunday. Loyola goes from #1 to #4, while Yale falls from #3 to #5 with all the shake-up in other games plus an unconvincing OT win over UMass. Towson jumping into the Top 5 pushed out Penn State, who went to #7. Villanova was the lone Top 10 team to drop, but only falling one spot as Notre Dame moved back in after their big win over Maryland.

Only one team fell out of the Top 20 this week, which was Colgate after their loss to Lehigh. Their spot was taken by Boston University, making their debut in our poll, coming in at #20. Otherwise, this was probably our least crazy week in terms of upsets and shake-up in the Top 20.
