Week 10 Mid Major 15

Posted: January 11, 2017 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.

Little later than normal today since I struggled to wake up early. Anyways, Gonzaga and Saint Mary’s retained the top 2 spots again and Wichita State slid into the #3 spot. UNC Wilmington is up 7 spots to #4 and has been very good all season. Dayton dropped to 5 while Rhode Island and Illinois State held the 6 and 7 spots, respectively. 3 new entrants to the top 15 are Boise State, Oakland and East Tennessee State.Former #4 UT Arlington fell 11 spots to 15.
