The final CSCAA Division I poll of 2020 is in the books. Before casting their ballots, the committee reviewed all forms of competition (virtual, intrasquad and in-person) since the November poll. The Longhorn men and women both rank first.

The Texas men continue their stronghold on the polls, unanimously earning the top spot. Georgia and California share the second position. Texas A&M is fourth; they were sixth last month. Florida men remain in fifth this month. Newcomers on the men’s side include Navy (24) and Southern Methodist (25). Navy received votes in the November poll.

The committee noted impressive relay results posted by the Texas women, helping them earn the top spot. They were second in November and entered the preseason poll in eighth. Virginia women move up to second this month and are only three points behind the Longhorns. Georgia, NC State and Tennessee take third, fourth and fifth, respectively, to close out the top five this year. After receiving votes in November, Arkansas jumps into the polls at 17th.
