It was another manic weekend in college lacrosse, with several upsets, plenty of close calls, and a new, but familiar, #1 team at the top of our College Crosse Top 20. It was just Chris, Ryan, Adam, & myself in this week’s voting. Directly below you can find each of our individual ballots and below that is the official College Crosse Top 20 poll for Week 8. Let us know any thoughts you have or what your Top 20 would be in the comments or on Twitter.

Maryland & Penn State were #1 & #2 last week, respectively. Maryland took a slight fall from #1 to #3 this week, while Penn State went from #2 last week to #1 this week. Virginia had a nice jump from #5 last to #2 this week, while Loyola also leveled-up from #7 last week to #4 this week. Penn rounds up our top 5 this week, as the Quakers moved all the way from 11th last week to #5 this week after their victory over Yale.

We had two teams fall out of our Top 20 from last week in Richmond & Georgetown. The Spiders & Hoyas were replaced with Rutgers & North Carolina who crept back into the Top 20 after their big wins over Ohio State & Duke, respectively.
