Coming off a weekend sweep of Villanova to claim the outright BIG EAST Regular Season title, the Creighton Baseball team got a little national notoriety as the Bluejays checked in at No. 25 in both D1Baseball.com and Baseball America's final regular season poll. Each poll was unveiled early on Monday, May 20.
The last time Creighton appeared in either the Baseball America or D1Baseball.com poll was on May 2, 2016, when the Bluejays checked in at No. 25 for Baseball America.
With a 35-11 overall record the Bluejays sit at No. 23 in the NCAA RPI and were receiving votes in the USA Today Coaches Poll when it was released last Monday on May 13.
The Bluejays enter the BIG EAST Tournament as the top-seed and will face off with the four-seed, Seton Hall, in the opening game on Thursday, May 23 at 1:30 pm (CT).
