Preseason rankings have as many as six teams ranked coming into the season with others receiving votes.

The National College Baseball Writers of America (NCBWA) has four teams in the Top 20, The USA Today Coaches Poll and Collegiate Baseball both have six teams ranked in the  Top 26 while Baseball America has four in the Top 25.
