Back on Saturday, Marquette men’s lacrosse picked up the first ranked win during the tenure of head coach Andrew Stimmel, beating #5 Penn State 12-11 in a neutral site game on Long Island.
That leads to a natural question: Is that enough for a 4-3 team to earn national poll votes?
The answer? Yes!
While Inside Lacrosse does not show the point totals for teams that do not make it into the top 20, the fact of the matter is that Marquette is clearly listed in the Receiving Votes area of the Week Six poll.
