Composite of 5 major NCAA Division I polls, Feb. 20 (corrected)

Note: I found I apparently had used an incorrect NCBWA poll. Corrected numbers are below.

Each week during the regular season, 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.

The USA TODAY coaches poll doesn't publish another poll until later in the season, but the other five polls offered updated rankings today.

TCU is No. 1 in all five rankings.

South Carolina is fifth, Clemson 21st and Coastal Carolina is 22nd.

There are seven ACC teams and six SEC teams in the composite Top 25 ranking. The +/- represents rise or fall from the preseason composite poll.

     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.
