UCLA NO. 1 IN FINAL COLLEGIATE BASEBALL POLL

TUCSON, Ariz. — UCLA is ranked No. 1 in the final Collegiate Baseball top 30 poll after winning its first national baseball championship with an 8-0 victory over Mississippi State at the College World Series Tuesday.

UCLA has now won 109 NCAA national team titles in school history which has been secured by 18 different sports.

The Bruins rolled through the NCAA Tournament with a 10-0 record and finished 5-0 at the College World Series. UCLA, which finished with a 49-17 overall record, only allowed opponents to score four runs over five CWS games. In the 67-year-history of the College World Series, only one national champion has given up fewer runs with California allowing three in 1957.

It was the second year in a row that a team from the Pac-12 has gone through the entire NCAA Tournament undefeated. Arizona accomplished the feat last year as the Wildcats went 10-0.

It was the 28th national baseball championship from teams that currently make up the Pac-12 which is three times more than any other conference. The Southeastern Conference is second with nine national titles in baseball.

When the 64-team tournament was announced, nine SEC teams were awarded NCAA Regional bids while the Atlantic Coast Conference received eight. Shockingly, the Pac-12 only received only four bids. Not only was UCLA the eventual national champion but two of the final four teams were from the Pac-12 in UCLA and Oregon St.  

UCLA was ranked fifth in the Collegiate Baseball pre-season poll.

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