We had another fun weekend in college lacrosse. Conference play is heating up, which means a lot of tense, close games down the stretch. Penn State stayed the king this week in our Top 20 poll, but there was a bit of reshuffling below the Nittany Lions from last weekend's poll, especially in the bottom half of the Top 20.

Jake, Chris, Ryan, Adam, & myself took part in the voting this week. Directly below you can find each of our individual ballots and below that is the official College Crosse Top 20 poll for Week 9.
