Week 12 Mid Major 15

Posted: January 25, 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, Gonzaga will likely be a top seed in March.

Gonzaga holds on to the number 1 spot (not even close to losing it). Wichita State takes over the #2 spot from Saint Mary’s, who falls to 3. Illinois State moves up one spot to #4. New ranked teams are BYU, Belmont and Rhode Island, all ranked near the back of the top 15.
