The votes are in and we have two new numbers ones in the LetsRun.com NCAA Cross Country Fans Super Polls.

On the men’s side, Mark Wetmore’s Colorado Buffaloes are the new #1, edging Dave Smith’s Oklahoma State Cowboys. Previous #1, defending national champion Wisconsin, tumbled to #5 in the polls after a disastrous showing at their home adidas meet two weekend’s ago.

The Buffaloes are trying to win their first NCAA title since 2006. The USTFCCCA Coaches’ polls have Oklahoma State #1 ahead of Colorado. With Colorado moving to the Pac 10 last year, these two squads will not square off until the NCAA meet.

Georgetown Women

Georgetown Women Celebrate The 2011 NCAA Title

On the women’s side, Florida State is #1 ahead of previous #1 Oregon, after Florida State beat Oregon by 15 points at the pre-NCAA meet two weekend’s ago.  Karen Harvey’s FSU squad is trying to win its first NCAA XC title. Oregon is shooting for its first title since 1987. The best the Ducks did under previous coach Vin Lananna was runner-up finishes in 2007 and 2008.

In the conference polls, the Pac 10s women’s meet is always stacked with 5 teams in the top 10 in the country competing. #10 Colorado is only the fifth highest ranked Pac 10 team in the country. Good thing the conference added two new members last year or a top 10 team in the country could finish in the bottom half of the conference. That is how good the Pac 10 is.

On the men’s side, both the Pac 10 and Big 12 have 3 teams in the top 10.
