While we all obsess over the official rankings, we also 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.
I don’t think anybody could have predicted all the craziness of the first two weeks—I certainly didn’t—but that makes for an interesting second edition of Power Rankings with lots of movement since the preseason. There’s an unsurprising new No. 1 team, two slightly more surprising new entries into the top four, and three new teams enter the top 20. If the first two weeks are any indication, we’re in for a really fun 2020 season.
