Composite of six major national NCAA DI baseball rankings (final)

Each week, posts a composite poll of five national NCAA Division I rankings. In the table below, I've added to the mix for a six-ranking composite.

National champion Coastal Carolina was a consensus - and unanimous - No. 1 in the rankings. The Chanticleers were 15th in the final composite rankings before the NCAA playoffs began.

South Carolina finished 13th, down from 12th the previous poll, and Clemson was 16th, down from ninth.

There are seven SEC teams and six ACC teams in the Top 25.

   Poll key: NCBWA -- National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association; BBA -- Baseball America; USAT -- USA TODAY coaches; CB -- Collegiate Baseball; D1 --; PG --

   Points are awarded on a descending scale, from 25 points for a first-place vote to 1 for a 25th-place vote. Some polls ranked more than 25 teams, but I kept it at the top 25 for consistency's sake. In the event of ties, the points are divided evenly among the tied teams.
