Week 6 Mid-Major 15

Posted: December 14, 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.

Gonzaga is now the clear #1 after St. Mary’s lost to UT Arlington at home. However, St. Mary’s loss didn’t hurt them enough to drop below the 2nd spot. Monmouth, winners of 8 straight, moves to #3 after an impressive road win at Memphis. Wichita State and Dayton round out the top 5. George Mason is now ranked 6 after not being ranked last week. They got off to a very bad start to the season, losing their first 3 games, but has one every game since including wins at Northern Iowa and at Penn State. They play #7 VCU on 12/30 so we can see just how far they have come then. George Mason, Nevada and UNC Wilmington all move into the top 15, with Ohio, Chattanooga and Valparaiso moving out.
