Week 5 Mid-Major 15

Posted: December 7, 2016 in NCAA

The Mid Major 15 is a ranking of the top 15 mid-major teams in the country. Conferences excluded from these rankings are the power-7: ACC, American, Big Ten, Big 12, Big East, Pac-12 and SEC. The teams that appear on this list are likely good names to know when searching for Cinderella come March. Although, St. Mary’s and Gonzaga will likely be top seeds in March.

The top 5 teams remain the same with Wichita State passing VCU as the only change from last week’s ranking. Monmouth jumps 8 spots all the way up to 7 and now have 6 straight wins. Meanwhile BYU dropped 3 spots after its loss to USC. Middle Tennessee, Oakland and Chattanooga are new entrants to the Mid Major 15 with UT Arlington, Akron and UNC Wilmington dropping out.
