Conference Rankings

Updated 16 Jan. 2017

Conferences are ranked according to their W-Rank (weighted rank), which is composed of the average score of each team in the conference, the average ranking of each team in the conference, and the percentage of teams in the conference ranked in the top 30. The S-Rank (simple rank) column only compares the average score of each team in the conference.
