It is the first regular-season title for the 14th-ranked Cougars.

CSU (16-3, 9-1) must wait to see if it has to share the championship with either Lander and/or Armstrong Atlantic. If either or both of those teams win the rest of their PBC matches, they would tie CSU.

The Cougars, who have won seven straight matches, will play at Division I Troy at 3 p.m. Friday.
