DALLAS (NCBWA) The National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association continues its tradition of NCAA Division I polls for the 25th year with its 2022 weekly surveys.

Preseason No. 1 Texas (3-0) swept Rice to remain unbeaten and hold the top spot for two weeks in succession. Defending NCAA champion (first ever) Mississippi State dropped from No. 3 to 10 after falling twice in three home games to now-No. 14 Long Beach State.

Some of the big movers from preseason to week one also were Oklahoma State from No. 13 to 5, Long Beach State from No. 29 to 14, Georgia from No. 22 to 16, and Oregon State from No. 18 to 12, among others.

There have been 13 conferences (12 this week) represented in the first two standings of 2022, and there were 14 different conferences in the 2021 NCBWA polls.

The 2022 poll voters come from among 33 college baseball writers and related media persons from throughout the nation. The 22 season features 301 NCAA Division I baseball-playing schools, and for more information or to join the NCBWA, please go to www.ncbwa.com.
