NCR D1 Fall 2023 Rankings Week 11

Indiana still threatens the top three. Libel Kruger photo.

Some play-ins and the Big 10 finals are all we have to work with.

As a result there's not much to change. Notre Dame gets back into the Top 20 after a season where they were just a kick here or a try there from having a winning season. Wisconsin's win over UND was not that different from Michigan's score vs those same Badgers, and they did beat Purdue. Tough for Fordham, but their argument has also been around close losses, and in the end strength of schedule was marginally on the side of the Fighting Irish.

Principia moves past Iona, naturally. Could Indiana move past St. Bonaventure? No, not unless they play each other. The tripping point on that is scores against Navy, which was a lopsided loss for Indiana and a 15-3 loss for St. Bonaventure. So Indiana needs something else (like the playoffs) to put that aside.
