The first LetsRun.com NCAA XC Fan Polls for 2013 are out and the Oklahoma State men and Duke women are the #1 teams in the country, according to you, the LRC fan.

Men: OSU A Dominant #1, Colorado and NAU Strong 2-3
On the men’s side, the Oklahoma State Cowboys are huge, huge favorites getting 76 first place votes, ten times the amount of any other team. Colorado and Northern Arizona were second and third, well ahead of Oregon and BYU who rounded out the top 5. There then was a drop-off to #6 Portland.

The picture from the LRC faithful is clear on the men’s side, Oklahoma State, the clear #1, Colorado and NAU in whichever order you prefer as #3 and #4, and the same with Oregon and BYU at #4 and #5.

If Dave Smith’s Cowboys can win the NCAA title, this will be their fourth title in five years.

Duke and Providence Co-Favorites
On the women’s side, Duke is #1, but Providence got 8 more first place votes than Duke. No one else was close in terms of first place votes, so not a lot separates Providence and Duke. Think of them as co-favorites for the title and let this be a reminder we need more voters in our women’s polls.

Our polls are open to the public, and all you have to do if give us your top ten teams in the country.

The Oregon Ducks are a strong #3 and Washington and Florida State round out our top 6.

Voting was done prior to this past weekend’s action so consider these the LRC Pre Season NCAA XC Fan Polls. After the national polls, you can see the regional fan rankings.

Correction on Regional Polls: South Dakota State was not an option in the Midwest. We will add them for the next poll. If any other new teams to D1 were missing please email us at [email protected]
