Men DII College Rankings
You've probably been waiting for this.
Here is our final Men's DII 15s rankings for the 2019 fall season.
Picking the #1 is fairly easy. The big concern on Queens had been that they hadn't played opponents whose strength we were sure of, and they had a loss to NSCRO team Southern Virginia in there, too. Even so, Queens we never lower than #8, and bumped up to #2 after the first rounds of the playoffs.
There's little doubt that the national champion crowned on December 8 will be our #1 as every team in that final four has done more than just win a couple of playoff games, but has been consistently strong.
Well there's not a lot to say here. We had just a few Round 1 playoff games, and most went according to expectations.
The one game in which the lower-ranked team was victorious was #21 Lehigh over #18 North Carolina 18-15. Lehigh moves up.
We have to find a new #1 as the team that has been camped out at the top of the rankings, Wisconsin-Whitewater, lost.
Yes, sure, the Warhawks lost by a mere five points, but it is very, very tight at the top in these rankings. With #2 Furman being idle, and Norwich playing #6 UMass-Lowell and winning in impressive fashion, it's the Cadets who get the #1 ranking.
