While we all obsess over the official rankings, we all know they don’t always tell the whole story. When you factor in some DIII lowballing, conservative Big Ten judges and the occasional (frequent?) Carol-ing in the SEC, a teams’ ranking doesn’t always accurately reflect how they’ll match up against another squad. So, we present to you our Power Rankings, our de facto way of ranking who’s hot and who’s not and what you can expect from our top 20 teams.
As teams settle in for the ever-looming postseason, there is quite a bit of movement around the bottom half of the rankings as many teams get away from their early season blunders or have stumbled a bit over the past few weeks. The return of a superstar also marks the return of a former No. 1 team to the top spot this week in what is otherwise a rather uneventful top five. This final pre-conference edition of the rankings gives you some insight as to how I see the major conference championship meets playing out.
Please note—upcoming meets are subject to change as many schools have altered events due to COVID-19. You can keep yourself updated with each school’s changes here.
