Division I Rankings Home

Back on May 9, the Wildcats were ranked No. 1 and the Razorbacks sat second. The following week, Arkansas and Kentucky swapped spots. The same happened eight days ago in the penultimate rankings of the 2016 season.

And what do you know: The Razorbacks and Wildcats weren’t done.

Entering next week’s finals in Eugene, Arkansas is the favorite to capture the team championship. The Razorbacks, along with their 21 scoring chances, are No. 1 according to the most recent rankings that were released Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA). If they follow through and put together a winning effort, it would be their first outdoor title in program history.

Of those 21 entries for Arkansas, six are in the sprints and hurdles, five are in the jumps, four are in both the distance events and combined events, with two left for the relays.

Kentucky, the top-ranked team for three weeks this season, leads the chase pack at No. 2. The Wildcats will bring 17 entries with them to Eugene, the second most in the field. Ten of Kentucky’s 17 scoring chances are in the sprints and hurdles.

Settling in behind the Razorbacks and Wildcats are third-ranked Texas, fourth-ranked LSU and fifth-ranked Texas A&M. When it comes to entries, the Aggies lead that trio with 17, while the Longhorns and Tigers hauled in 14 after the preliminary round.

Defending champion Oregon fell from third last week to sixth this week, despite the fourth most entries (15). The Ducks have been ranked no lower than sixth this season and it ties their low-water mark from Week 1 way back on April 4.

Rounding out the top-10 are the other usual suspects — No. 7 Southern California, No. 8 Stanford, No. 9 Florida and No. 10 Tennessee.

The National Team Computer Rankings are complied by a mathematical formula based on national descending order lists. The purpose and methodology of the rankings is to create an index that showcases the teams that have the best potential of achieving the top spots in the national team race.

Rankings points do not equate with NCAA Championships team points.
